Starting November 18, 2020, there are additional steps landlords must take before evicting tenants who are behind on rent.
To help stop the spread of COVID-19, the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has issued an order that protects some residential tenants who have fallen behind on rent from being evicted until 2021.
If you need catching up on rent, the Virginia Rent and Mortgage Relief Program may be able to provide financial assistance.
If you lost income due to the COVID-19 pandemic and are being sued for an eviction, you qualify for a delay of your eviction case.
Starting November 9, 2020, larger landlords must offer tenants who fall behind rent a payment plan before they can evict.
