Mold (§ 55.1-1215) – If mold is found during the move-in inspection, the tenant has the right to terminate the contract or require the landlord to remove the substance. The Virginia Standard Residential Lease Agreement is a legally binding lease agreement between the tenant and the lessor that sets out the terms of the contract for the tenant. Tenants should be sure to check all sections of the document before signing an agreement. If for any reason the tenant is unsure of the language of the contract, he may consider consulting a competent lawyer for clarification and / or legal advice. Detached houses, townhouses, condominiums and condominium rental agreements, for which the lessor owns and leases 4 units or less, are excluded from the VRLTA. .
