A brief word on important regulatory and legal matters in Harrisonburg
Several laws govern relationships between renters and property owners in Northern Virginia. The Virginia Residential Landlord and Tenant Act (VRTLA), establishes the rights and obligations of renters and landlords in Virginia, and supersedes all leases and county ordinances. Furthermore our local governments in and around Harrisonburg have specific ordinances regarding to the management of rental properties in their jurisdictions. Nesbitt Realty strives to work within the bounds of these regulations, laws and ordinances at all times and we try to keep informed about changes in the laws as they occur. That said, only a court of law has the power to enforce the VRLTA and local ordinances.
