Hi, Sandy. You should be aware that leases in Virginia generally prohibit sub-lets. That being said, there are a lot of people with no scruples in bad financial situations that are trying funny stuff to scam unsuspecting out-of-towners out of their security deposit money. Try our group's Web site, http://www.betterhomesva.com,
for honest rentals here. Rents have skyrocketed here over the last 18 months. The situation has gotten so bad that, if you can find a home for under $300,000.00 in this area, it's cheaper to buy than rent. Our Web site has a direct link to sales in this area, too.
