Appellate Review

Action Reviewable

Tenants of 1225 New Hampshire Avenue, NW v. DC Rental Housing Commission [PDF], 647 A.2nd 70 (1994)Rental Housing Commission’s ruling on landlord’s request for substantial hardship rent increase was not final order, subject to immediate judicial review, in view of Commission’s adherence to its prior remand of case to rent administrator for further findings; instead, tenants’ entitlement to review ripened only when rent administrator issued its decision on remand.


Procedural Issues

Dorchester House Associates Limited Partnership v. DC Rental Housing Commission [PDF], 913 A.2nd 1260 (2006)- RHC committed procedural error when it effectively converted owner’s motion to dismiss without prejudice into a motion to dismiss with prejudice.

Joyce v. DC Rental Housing Commission [PDF], 741 A.2nd 24 (1999) - Housing provider acted diligently to file her appeal with the RHC, though it was not filed within the 10-day period after the mailing of the Rental Accommodations and Conversion’s (RACD) decision, due to the RACD’s mailing it by improper means to an old addess.
