Summary as passed House: (all summaries)
Virginia Residential Landlord and Tenant Act; fire or casualty damage; termination of rental agreement.  Provides for the termination of the rental agreement by either the landlord or the tenant in cases where the dwelling unit is damaged by fire or casualty, or required repairs can only be accomplished if the tenant vacates the dwelling unit. The bill provides for required notice of an intent to terminate the rental agreement and specifies the date of termination. The bill also requires, upon termination, that the landlord return all security and prepaid rent, plus accrued interest, recoverable by law unless the landlord reasonably believes that the tenant, tenant's guests, or those occupying the dwelling unit with the tenant's permission were the cause of the damage or casualty, in which case the landlord must account to the tenant for the security and prepaid rent, plus accrued interest, based upon the damage or casualty.
