What protections does Fairfax’s Just Cause Evictions Ordinance give me?

Fairfax’s Just Cause Evictions Ordinance protects you from arbitrary eviction. In order to be evicted from your rental unit, your landlord must have a just cause.

If you are evicted for a “no-fault” just cause, you are entitled to relocation payments and you may have the right to return to your unit under certain circumstances, if that unit ever again becomes available for rent.

If you or a tenant in your household is a student or teacher, a child, elderly, disabled, or terminally-ill you may qualify for additional protections under the ordinance.
