In response to COVID-19, Virginia REALTORS® has created a new standard form that property managers can use in their rentals. The new COVID-19 Rules and Regulations Form (Form 200 RR) can be implemented by distributing to tenants without requiring tenant signatures. Under the Virginia Residential Landlord Tenant Act (VRLTA), landlords and property managers may adopt or amend rules and regulations without tenant consent, so long as those new or altered rules and regulations do not substantially change the bargain the tenant agreed to. The purpose of this new form is to assist property managers, landlords, and tenants balance rights, responsibilities, and needs with the limitations created by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Access the COVID-19 Rules and Regulations Form here. This form can also be accessed through the Virginia REALTORS® COVID-19 Resources and Updates Page.
