B. A rule or by-law adopted, amended or made available to the tenant after the closing agreement is applicable to the tenant if the tenant has received an appropriate notification of acceptance or amendment and does not constitute a substantial change in the tenant`s good business. If a rule or regulation adopted or amended after the conclusion of the tenancy agreement constitutes a substantial change in its good business, it is not valid unless the tenant consents in writing. A “safety deposit” means any refundable deposit made available to a landlord by a tenant to ensure compliance with the terms of a tenancy agreement, as a guarantee for damage to rented premises or as a pet deposit. However, this money is considered an application deposit until the start of the lease. The “safety deposit” does not include damage or rental insurance, as defined in the provisions of , 55.1-1206, which was acquired by a landlord to cover a tenant. 5. Occupation by a tenant who does not pay rent under the tenancy agreement; B. Any non-resident real estate owner permanently designates and maintains a representative who is a natural person, resides in the Commonwealth or, if that representative is a corporation, limited liability company, corporation or other entity, is authorized to do business in the Commonwealth and (ii) has a business office within the Commonwealth. Any rental contract executed by or on behalf of non-resident owners with respect to such real estate determines that agent and the agent`s office address specifically for the purpose of notifying a lawsuit, notification, order or claim legally prescribed or admitted for the purpose of assailing it to such a non-resident owner. B. If the tenant remains in possession without the lessor`s consent after the term of the tenancy agreement expires or its termination, the lessor may bring an action in possession and recover the actual damages, reasonable legal fees and legal costs, unless the tenant proves by an overweight evidence that the tenant`s failure to evacuate the unit at the time of termination was appropriate. The landlord may include in the tenancy agreement an appropriate liquidation penalty of no more than 150 per cent of the monthly rent, for each day the tenant remains in the unit after the termination date indicated in the landlord`s press release.
However, if the unit is a public dwelling unit or other dwelling unit subject to the regulations of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, any penalty for liquidated damage may not exceed the amount of monthly rent set in the tenancy agreement. If the landlord accepts the continuation of the tenant`s occupation, this is the case. A guest client or tenant may be excluded by the owner of the owner`s land on the landlord`s property who violates the terms of the tenancy agreement, a local by-law or a national or federal law, after written notification is communicated to the client or tenant.
