Summary as passed: (all summaries)
Virginia Fair Housing Law; housing for older persons. Conforms the Virginia Fair Housing Law to the federal Fair Housing Law in the area of housing for older persons. The bill removes the requirement that, in order to qualify for housing for older persons, there be significant facilities and services specifically designed to meet the physical or social needs of older persons, or, if the provision of such facilities and services is not practicable, that such housing is necessary to provide important housing opportunities for older persons. The bill also provides that the 80 percent threshold necessary to qualify for housing for older persons shall be based on the number of occupied units and not the total number of units occupied by persons aged 55 years or older. As a result, it may be easier to qualify for housing for older persons and exclude families with children.
