Nashville, TN asked in Real Estate Law, Landlord - Tenant and Military Law for Virginia

Q: What are my rights if 30 days notice wasn’t possible?

I recently separated from the navy (March 23 to be exact). It was an admin separation and I didn’t have a for sure final day so there was no way for me to give a 30days notice. I brought my orders to Remax Alliance and they informed that even though I was moving out on the 16th I would have to pay a full months rent due to not being given 30days notice. When it wasn’t possible to begin with.

A: It is unfortunate that the folks at Remax took that position. Your recourse would be to file a suit in court to claim that they were in error and let a Judge decide.
