University of the District of Columbia Law Review


Rental housing in the District of Columbia is subject to a "comprehensive scheme of regulation" 1 that is probably unique in its scope. One of the primary anchors of that scheme is The Rental Housing Conversion and Sale Act of 1980, as amended (Act).2 The purpose of this article is to examine the explicit requirements of the Act and how it affects tenant and landlord rights. The article will further discuss the use of the Act by tenants and their advocates to improve housing conditions in all neighborhoods of the District.
