The Virginia Landlord Tenant Act doesn't apply to all leases in Virginia. If it applies to yours I would question the viability of any suit based upon your fact pattern.
As Avvo is meant for general legal questions, I would suggest you contact an Attorney in your area to assist you directly. You can use the Find A Lawyer feature above to locate one.
The answer submitted by the Attorney above is for Educational Purposes Only and is not Legal Advice. The attorney does not represent the poster and no attorney-client privilege has been created by answering the question. As always the Attorney suggest that the poster seeks out a qualified attorney in their geographical area to assist them in the matter.
Our Rating is calculated using information the lawyer has included on their profile in addition to the information we collect from state bar associations and other organizations that license legal professionals. Attorneys who claim their profiles and provide Avvo with more information tend to have a higher rating than those who do not.
