Description

Lease agreements; requirements; emergency. Specifies that a lease agreement or other written document conveying a non-freehold estate in land is not invalid, unenforceable, or subject to repudiation by the parties to such agreement on account of, or otherwise affected by, the fact that the conveyance of the estate was not in the form of a deed. Current law requires a lease for a term of more than five years to be in the form of a deed. The bill further replaces all references throughout the Code to "deed of lease" with the term "lease." This bill is in response to The Game Place, L.L.C., et al. v. Fredericksburg 35, LLC, 295 Va. 396, 813 S.E.2d 312 (Va. 2018). The bill contains an emergency clause. Amends § 55-2, § 55-57, § 55-76, § 55-77, § 55-79, § 58.1-807, of the Code of Virginia. Read the Bill »
