My landlord wants me to move out within 30 days for renovation (Virginia), is that legal?

My lease is one year based and is about to end at the end of July, 2018. However, my landlord literally asked me if I would like to sign a new lease for the next school year on May 10 and I said yes. But she did not gave me a response.

Now, on July 2, she told me that she will not be renewing my lease as she is deciding to renovate the bedrooms and bathroom, she asked me to leave before July 31.

This is very awkward for me as it is not enough time to find a good dwelling left for me and it is not a good time of a year to find new roommates and new rooms. I am wondering if what she is doing is legal or not?

Thanks in advance!
