Supreme Court of Virginia reinstates some evictions effective immediately

Virginia Politics

RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — The Supreme Court of Virginia ruled Tuesday morning to allow landlords to evict tenants for issues other than failure to pay rent.

This is an amendment to the Fifth Order issued on June 8, which suspended all evictions through June 28. They said the amended order is effective immediately.

Here is the amended order:

Recognizing that unlawful detainer actions and writs of eviction may issue for matters unrelated to failure to pay rent, effective immediately, courts may hear residential unlawful detainer actions, and issue writs of eviction, unrelated to the failure to pay rent for the remaining duration of the Fifth Order (June 28, 2020).
