Your rent can be more affordable if...

Barbara Cline, in How one senior found a way to make DC more affordable, explains how residents aged 62 and older and disabled residents of any age have a legal right to apply for a permanent lower annual rent increase if they live in a rent-controlled apartment.

The Forest Hills Connection article considers the case of Kris Laurenti, a DC government employee, who lives in a rent-controlled apartment.   Cline walks readers through the rules and the calculations associated with the lower rent increase provision and provides links to valuable resources.

This is a must-read for those who live in a rent-controlled or know people who do, especially if they are close to or are 62 or older or who have a disability.
