Yes. All long-term renters qualify for Just Cause for Eviction protections BUT landlords can still terminate a lease if there is a “just cause,” including failure to pay rent, breaching the lease, or repairs. Relocation payments may be required in some instances.
On March 23, 2021, the Richmond City Council adopted Urgency Ordinance No. 02-21 ("Eviction Moratorium") establishing a temporary moratorium on certain evictions of residential tenants in Richmond through the local emergency and sixty (60) days thereafter.
