State level eviction protections have been extended to June 30, 2022. Here is what you need to know.

The Virginia Rent Relief Program (RRP) is a critical lifeline that can pay rent, past due amounts, and court costs for qualifying tenants as far back as April 2020.

If you lost income due to the COVID-19 pandemic and are being sued for an eviction based on nonpayment of rent, you may qualify for a delay of your eviction case.

Money is still available for tenants struggling to pay rent. Tenants can now apply directly with the bilingual RMRP Support Center at (703) 962-1884. Tenants can also apply online through the link above.

If your landlord gives you a notice claiming you abandoned the property, you must act quickly to keep your lease.

Source of income, or source of funds, became a protected class in the Virginia Fair Housing Law on July 1, 2020. It is unlawful to discriminate against a renter or homebuyer because of any source that lawfully provides funds to or on behalf that person.

Starting November 9, 2020, larger landlords must offer tenants who fall behind rent a payment plan before they can evict.
