A. Either party may terminate a rental agreement with a term of 60 days or more by
giving written notice to the other at least 60 days prior to the termination date;
however, the rental agreement may require a longer period of notice. Notwithstanding the provisions of this section, where a landlord and seller of a
manufactured home have in common (i) one or more owners, (ii) immediate family members,
or (iii) officers or directors, the rental agreement shall be renewed except for reasons
that would justify a termination of the rental agreement or eviction by the landlord
as authorized by this chapter. A landlord may not cause the eviction of a tenant by willfully interrupting gas,
electricity, water, or any other essential service, or by removal of the manufactured
home from the manufactured home lot, or by any other willful self-help measure.
B. If the termination is due to a change in the use of all or any part of a manufactured
home park by the landlord, including conversion to hotel, motel, or other commercial
use, planned unit development, rehabilitation, or demolition, a 180-day written notice
is required to terminate a rental agreement. Such termination notice requirement shall not be waived; however, a period of less
than 180 days may be agreed upon by both the landlord and tenant in a written agreement
separate from the rental agreement executed after such notice is given. The notice required by this section may be sent concurrently with the notice of
intent to sell required by § 55.1-1308.2.
