Virginia Immediate Notice to Quit for Illegal Activity

The Virginia immediate notice to quit is a legal document that a landlord can serve on a tenant who has committed criminal, illegal, menacing, and/or threatening activity on their rental property. Once the landlord has given this notice to the tenant, they can immediately file an eviction action to have the tenant removed. This type of notice is most often issued by a landlord when their tenant is selling or using drugs on the premises. If the tenant does not vacate immediately, the landlord can have them removed by a Sheriff by obtaining a Writ of Possession.
