Legal Question in Real Estate Law in Virginia

Do i have a retaliation case in Alexandria?

Month-2-month tenant asked to move out with the usual 30 days notice. BUT, received vacate notice shortly after I complained to the landlord that her contractors were stealing electricity from my patio. Landlord has condoned this before, and I complained before, and she reimbursed us.

Also have disability (received some accommodation at landlord expense) and habitability (roach problem not fixed) defenses.
