Questions about Marijuana in Rental Properties?

With the new law going into effect on July 1, 2018, many landlords have questions about what they can and cannot prohibit on their properties. Hint: the law allows landlords to completely prohibit marijuana use, possession, and cultivation on their properties (including medical marijuana) but your lease must say so.  

VAOA has answers for you and we have prepared a lease addendum that you can use.  The lease addendum allows you the choice of what you will allow on your properties.  The form can be found in the Member Center in the Forms Library.

Just a reminder, that marijuana is still considered a federally controlled substance (i.e. it is still illegal under federal law) so please keep this in mind when you are deciding on your policy, particularly if you receive any federal funds or participate in programs such as Section 8.

Please let us know if you have any specific questions.
