Virginia Residential Landlord and Tenant Act; tenant's assertion; condemnation of dwelling unit; remedies. Provides a rebuttable presumption of a landlord's material noncompliance with the rental agreement if the leased premises was condemned by an appropriate state or local agency due to the landlord's or his agent's refusal or failure to remedy a condition for which he was served a condemnation notice. The bill requires a court, when such rebuttable presumption is established, to award the tenant the amount of three months' rent, any prepaid rent, and any security deposit paid by the tenant.
