Hardship Rent Increases

Tenants of 5912 14th Street, NW v. DC Rental Housing Commission [PDF], 650 A.2nd 667 (1994) - When landlord withdrew hardship petition for rent ceiling increase, but then increased tenants’ rent as if 17% increase it had obtained with regard to that petition remained valid, rent ceiling under another hardship petition had to be re-calculated.

Kates v. DC Rental Housing Commission [PDF], 630 A.2nd 1131(1993) - Rental Housing Commission erred in not including adjustment to maximum possible income (MPRI), in determining whether landlord was entitled to hardship rent increase.
