As of July 1st, all pandemic related eviction protections have expired in Virginia.
We are now seeing the expected corresponding spike in eviction filings. As part of our work to stem the tide of evictions, we have compiled some important data on evictions in Virginia, know your rights information for tenants facing eviction for nonpayment of rent, and ways to get involved in the fight for housing rights in Virginia. You can navigate using the buttons below or by scrolling down the page.
If you’re facing eviction for nonpayment of rent and need legal help, you can see how to contact us here.
