Landlord, by new laws, can increase rent 20% once there is a vacancy. If previous tenant was paying $1500 (call DCHR hotline as previously written and request rent history), then when he/she moved out, ll could increase rent $300. Landlord can also charge 1/40 of price of renovations. In this case, if your rent is $500 more than previous tenant, $300 of that is due to vacany law, the other $200 means landlord must have made at least $8000 in renovations. If not, get on the horn to DCHR. Landlord must prove to them he made repairs, etc. But remember, landlords have ways of getting contractors to pad renovation receipts.
