Landlord - Tenant

Housing cases, such as eviction (also called unlawful detainer), are heard in the General District Court. There are a number of resources you may find helpful, whether you are a landlord or a tenant.

This is a very technical area of law with strict deadlines.

A little legal advice goes a long way, especially if a subsidized housing interest, such as a Section 8 Voucher, is involved. Be sure to visit Find a Lawyer and check with your local court for local resources.

The "Housing Law" section of VA Law Help 2 Go offers three videos discussing landlord repairs, eviction and security deposits.
