Two Major Changes Coming to the District’s Rental Housing Laws

Tuesday, November 23, 2021

Effective December 31, 2021, two major changes to District’s rental housing laws will occur:

  1. The COVID-19 rent freeze will lift and as a result housing providers will be allowed to send 30-day notices of rent increases to tenants;
  2. A major overhaul of the implementing regulations under the Rental Housing Act of 1985 will take effect. 

Please see the public memorandum from the Rental Housing Commission’s General Counsel for guidance on essential changes to the regulations that will immediately impact housing providers and tenants.
