Researching and deciding where you want to live can be exciting but a oftentimes stressful adventure. As a tenant in Virginia, you have certain rental rights as well as responsibilities. To ensure there are no hiccups down the road, do some research before you commit to any kind of lease agreement. Here are two helpful resources to study.
- The first is a general Virginia Rental Handbook that provides tips and faqs for tenants. Read it HERE.
- The second is the Virginia Residential Landlord and Tenant Act. (VRLTA) This document is more in depth and reviews the Virginia State Laws regarding rentals. Read it HERE.
