Abstract: For hundreds of years, the relationship between landlords and tenants was characterized by tenants having very few rights against landlords. Now, however, the courts and the Council of the District of Columbia have made laws that redefine this relationship and, as a result, tenants in the District of Columbia today have many legal rights related to rent, building condition, and purchase of their buildings. This guide is an introduction to these reforms in landlord-tenant law. The guide not only outlines tenant rights, but also is a reminder of tenant responsibilities to pay rent, respect the landlord's property, and comply with lease terms.
