My question involves landlord-tenant law in the State of: Virginia
I rented a home for 2+ years, I agreed to sign a lease for a third year. I signed the new lease and the landlord came back 3 months later and stated he was selling the home, he stated he never signed the new lease. The house was put up for short sale as landlord was facing foreclosure. The 2nd lease ended in June 09, I stayed until December 09 and vacated with 2 week notice to landlord as there was a pending contract on the home. Landlord is trying to keep deposit saying I owed a 60 day notice.
Lease says "the lease term shall not be extended automatically from month to month upon the same conditions as set forth in this lease. Notwithstanding the foregoing, prior to the of the initial Lease Term or expiration of any extended term, either of the parties may give the other at least 60 days written notice of intention not to extend the lease. My question is that since the lease term expired and was not extended, am I obligated to give 60 days?
Also landlord did not give itemized list of deductions from deposit (more than 30 days has passed) Landlord is stating that he is keeping deposit to cover the 60 days of unpaid rent.
Any help would be appreciated.
