I am a homeowner
and have a renter in a house in Nottoway County, VA that I want to evict. First, we sent the tenants a Formal Notice by certified mail asking for Feb. March and April back rent by May 1, 2017. To date we have not heard from tenants nor received rent. My next step is to file a Summons for Unlawful Detainer. We were trying to work with these tenants. But since we have not heard anything from these tenants I am asking for all of the rent that is owed to us. The fact of the matter is that they owe rent from November 2016 through May 10, 2017. My question is do I have to send an additional Formal Note to the tenants with the total rent due to us? And do I need an attorney to represent us in this matter?
JA: Because real estate
law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?
Customer: This in Crewe, VA, which is in Nottoway County.
JA: Has any paperwork been filed?
JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: Yes, on the forms it asks for damages
. Now according to the insurance company in Crewe, VA we could not put insurance on the house because the tenants had 6 abandon cars in the yard along with other debris. So, can we claim that as damages?
