Description

Manufactured Home Lot Rental Act; notice to tenant of building code violation; renewal of lease. Requires a manufactured home park operator (the landlord) to provide written notification to each year-round resident whose rental agreement is subject to automatic renewal of any violations that have been cited by the locality involving the failure of the park operator to comply with the obligations imposed by the Manufactured Home Lot Rental Act ( 55-248.41 et seq.) at least 60 days before the termination date of the rental agreement. If the violations cited by the locality have not been corrected within 30 days of the termination date, the automatic renewal provision of the Act shall not apply. Additionally, the bill provides that if the landlord fails to provide the required notice, the tenant shall have the right to terminate the rental agreement upon written notice to the landlord at least five business days prior to the effective date of termination. The bill states that if the tenant terminates the rental agreement, the landlord shall make disposition of the tenant's security deposit in accordance with law or the provisions of the rental agreement, whichever is applicable. Amends § 55-248.42:1, § 55-248.43, of the Code of Virginia. Read the Bill »
