West Virginia’s landlord-tenant laws are located in § 37-6-5, housed in their Real Property Chapter. This section of West Virginia law explains multiple tenets related to rental agreements, including month-to-month rental agreements. Article 6A covers security deposits, including when they must be returned after the renter moves out an eviction takes place.
It is important that both parties comply with state laws, including providing the proper amount of days’ notice when required for specific actions such as a lease termination of a month-to-month tenancy.
A termination notice period for short-term lease agreements requires a 30 day written notice according to §37-6-5, Notice to Terminate Tenancy.
