That's "Be Aware" and not "Beware."  The State of Virginia has made some changes this summer regarding renting properties.  First, as landlords you have been able to restrict "smoking" in your properties for quite some time, but now electronic cigarettes are included with tobacco as "smoking" making both lumped together and may be prohibited.

Next, the common law lease has gone through another round of changes and now very closely resembles the landlord-tenant act lease.   If you have 2 or more rental properties in the State of Virginia, we now must use the later.   In reality, because of the changes to the former, most will now use the  VRLTA.

And lastly, with only one client exception in 16 years, I have never had a problem with landlords and abiding with the Fair Housing laws of VA and the US.  As of this summer the Feral Government has made many changes to allow tenants with "Assistance Animals."  Let me first remind you that an assistance animal is NOT a pet.  No pet addendums or pet security deposits and no restrictions can be made by a landlord, condo association, or home owners association restricting residency by an assistance animal with his/her person.

We all would likely agree these rules make sense, but the implementation is tricky.  Landlords, if I'm representing you, we will walk through these rules and changes.  To others, lean on your Realtors because ignorance of the regulations is not a defense.

Finally, I am not an attorney and you unrepresented landlords may want to engage their counsel on these items before they need to hire one to defend them.

Barry Taylor, Manager of our Weichert, Realtors Great Falls Office, stopped by this morning around 9:00 as he visits every office in the Capital Region on his way to New Jersey for the 18th annual Weichert Charity Outing. 

Weichert raised more than $170,000 last year and is working to raise even more this month.

Consumers Checkbook Advice

I'm a fan of the information provided by the not-for-profit local Washington, DC Consumer's Checkbook and with all of the rain we have had lately, here's some timely information.  Maybe some of this will be helpful before we have new storms, too.

Grading is often a issue during home inspections because the slope of the lawn goes down towards your foundation instead of down and away.  But there is more.  Do a quick read and if I can be of help, call me -- David Houghtaling, 703-220-0406

I admit it, I really enjoy studying American history even decades after taking those courses in high school and college.  I should thank those that taught me and created a life-long desire to learn more.

So if you enjoy going to Mount Vernon and Monticello, visiting Colonial Williamsburg and the historic areas of places like Fredricksburg, perhaps you're curious about buying an antebellum (pre-Civil War) Virginia home.  I can help you find them and buy them.  You can start by clicking the photo above to see current listings.  Then call, text or email me!
