The Virginia immediate notice to quit is a notice served on a tenant letting them know that they must vacate a rental property immediately due to a non-remediable criminal or willful act on the premises that threatens the health and safety of others. There is no legal obligation that the landlord serve this notice to quit as they are permitted under law to terminate the rental agreement immediately upon discovering the violation. The landlord can obtain possession of the premises by proving to the court that the violations occurred and receiving an order of possession. This notice to quit serves as a way in which the landlord can avoid the eviction hearing by telling the tenant that if they do not vacate immediately, they will be sued.
