A Special Message from NVAA Legislative Counsel
Chip Dick's, Esq.
The 2018 General Assembly officially commenced on Wednesday, January 10, 2018 and ended on Saturday, March 10, 2018. There were
bills and resolutions introduced in this year's session, in addition to adoption of a state budget. The General Assembly was not able to agree on the state budget so the Governor called a Special Session to begin April 11, 2018. The main hang-up on reaching consensus on the state budget is whether to expand Medicaid or not, and it may take a while to reach consensus.
NVAA had a
Session. The General Assembly passed HB 857 (the Omnibus Landlord Tenant Bill which contains a number of improvements to the VRLTA), HB 855 and SB 197 (which clarifies and streamlines the Acceptance of Rent with Reservation provisions in the VRLTA) and HB 856 (which clarifies the granting of Orders of Immediate Possession).
The Governor has signed each of these bills and they will become law on July 1, 2018.
The passage of these bills will significantly improve the operating environment for landlords and property managers. NVAA works to bring value to its members with a strong presence in the Virginia General Assembly.
