Summary

Summons for unlawful detainer; initial hearing; subsequent filings; termination notice. Provides that if an initial hearing on a summons for unlawful detainer cannot be held within 21 days from the date of filing, it shall be held as soon as practicable, but not later than 30 days after the date of the filing. The bill further provides that an order of possession for the premises in an unlawful detainer action shall not be entered unless the plaintiff or the plaintiff's attorney or agent has presented a copy of a proper termination notice that the court admits into evidence. The bill allows a plaintiff to amend the amount alleged to be due and owing in an unlawful detainer action to request all amounts due and owing as of the date of a hearing on the action and to further amend such an amount to include additional amounts that become due and owing prior to the final disposition of a pending unlawful detainer action. The bill prohibits a plaintiff from filing a subsequent and additional unlawful detainer summons for such additional amounts. This bill is a recommendation of the Virginia Housing Commission and is identical to HB 1922.
