D.C. Restrictions on Evictions
D.C. landlords are very restricted in the reasons they can evict a tenant. For reasons other than non-payment of rent, tenants have 30 days to cure the problem. Landlords have to provide evidence of a valid reason for eviction if there is a reason to suspect that the landlord is kicking the tenant out for retaliatory reasons (e.g., if a tenant reported a violation).
