Information

Why Attend?

  • For residential landlords or tenants, learn the applicable rules to determine the length of any notice to cure for nonpayment, as well as the obligations imposed on the landlord depending on the number of rental units owned as a condition of obtaining possession
  • Discover what a residential landlord can do to regain possession, and what a tenant can do to keep possession
  • For commercial tenant clients, examine what defenses can be argued to protect the tenant who has been and who is being destroyed by the COVID-19 restrictions
  • For commercial landlord clients, review the steps that can be taken to keep the tenant in place paying the rent without violating COVID-19 restrictions for that business

Tenants and landlords of all types have been and are continuing to be devastated by the COVID-19 pandemic in Virginia and the onslaught of federal and state laws that directly affect all concerned. The CARES Act still applies and may affect the length of a landlord’s notice to cure. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has placed a moratorium on certain residential evictions, and the Virginia General Assembly is burdening the landlords to assist the tenants obtain rental assistance in order to obtain evictions for nonpayment of rent.

Commercial tenants are arguing the defense of force majeure as well other possible defenses while landlords are hoping to keep tenants in place with rent payments flowing. What are their choices?
