Revitalize Our Communities Committee (ROCC)

Empowering Neighborhoods Forum

Introducing New and Helpful Information for Landlords and Tenants.

Be the Good Landlord.jpegWe all have different expectations of residences, but actively being a good landlord helps to make Chesterfield neighborhoods great places to live and attracts good tenants.  The appearance of the property can positively or negatively affect the relationship between landlords and tenants, property values and the quality of your neighborhood.   These simple guidelines will positively affect the landlord/tenant relationship.

Landlord and Tenant Resources

The Landlord/Tenant brochure was developed to provide basic information for both parties to achieve an enjoyable rental experience. The VRLTA, Mfg Home Lot Rental Act and Fair Housing Act are law and therefore the best sites to find accurate answers to your questions. We encourage you to access the following links for more detailed information.
