    Virginia lease question

    I am a new landlord and I am trying to decide which lease to use. I was given 2 leases by a real estate agent. One incorporates the Virginia landlord tenant act and the other one does not. Does anyone have any advice on which one I should use? Thanks for any responses.

    As this is a UK site, with members familiar with UK laws and tenancy legislation, I doubt anyone here would be able to advise you fully.

      As stated, get advice from U.S.A. sites.

      But, the Virginia landlord tenant act should apply even if not stated,
      as it's an ACT, it's the law; to protect tenants and landlords

        Another vote for sell unless being a landlord is something you are particularly interested in doing. Yes, you can use a letting agency to manage the lets but ultimately the buck stops with you and in my experience a lot of letting agencies out there are pretty crap. Plus as a higher rate tax payer...

        Ok before you even consider what the agent did or did not do you need to get a handle on exactly what the tenancy says, if the s21 was valid and what the intentions of YOUR tenant are, you need them out asap, a lot of agents are utterly useless, are you located far away from the property and is that...

        We rented a flat out with the local branch of a national estate agent. They were charging a very low fee (that should’ve had my alarm bells ringing) and had a tenant immediately available. This was Dec2020/Jan2021 and the tenancy paperwork they sent to me was minimal.

        Tenant moved in...

        The work that they do would effectively be rent.
        But the letting rules for agricultural workers are different - but that's about the extent of my knowledge.

        I have a mobile home next to my property. Do I qualify for the rent a room scheme if I rent out the mobile home but the occupant must use the shower and washing facilities in my house i.e. so that the mobile home is not a separate unit of accommodation? There is a provision by the council that it...

        Unless you've always wanted to be a landlord, I'd sell them and use the money to do something different.

        Being a landlord at some distance is not easy, and being a landlord isn't all gravy either.
        It's not something to do just because an opportunity comes up.

        Sell them.

        As a 40% tax payer you will be hit hard by tax; managing properties from afar is difficult and expensive; as IHT will have been paid there will be no CGT if you sell quickly; land lording is not something you can learn overnight & there are a multitude of pitfalls.

        Just as an afterthought... Plan B: Would I be allowed to have someone stay in the mobile home rent free in return for helping me about the farm? (I have 10 acres which needs a lot of up keep in the summer) They would shower and wash and possibly cook in the main home but just sleep and use the lounge...

        Thanks everyone. I will take your advice and not bother. The mobile home is on my property and the door is about 10ft away from my door but it has shower, toilet etc. I really don't think it's worth all the bother especially as I have an extremely difficult neighbour who would report me at the drop...
