Language classes:

“Any recommendations for affordable language classes? I’m primarily looking to learn Spanish, but I could also use a brush-up on ASL. Pretty much anywhere in the DC area, as long as it’s Metro-accessible, but would be great if it were downtown, Columbia Heights, or somewhere on the Red Line.”

Kittens at Parkwood and Holmead:

“Two very small, very friendly kittens seem to be living in a yard at Parkwood and Holmead. Anyone know if they are missing/have owner? Trying to figure out if they should be scooped up and given a home, or returned to their home.”

Do I have to pay sales tax on my rent?

“I have rented in DC for years in different places, but have never experienced any landlord to make me pay sales tax on top of my rent. Can this be true? It seems a topic that has not been discussed.”

Good Restaurant Downtown/Near 14th Street with Large Circular Table for 10?

“I have a very specific request indeed. I am looking for a very good (read: relatively fancy) restaurant downtown or near 14th st (Logan Circle area) that can accommodate 10 people. However, I greatly prefer the use of a circular table rather than a long rectangular one. It makes for a more interesting experience since you are better able to converse with people other than those immediately seated in and around your seat. So – any suggestions? Note – price is not necessarily an object however due to a the group size I think we will likely avoid anything particularly ethnic since some members of the party may not be comfortable.”

Rental application and fee:

“Landlord-to-be here, seeking advice on two questions from the PoPville experts:

First, what rental application do you use? I’ve seen the GCAAR form. Not sure if there are others or if that is the go-to form.

Second, what (if any) application fee do you charge? Do you charge it to everyone who submits an application or only those applicants who look good enough from the application to warrant running a credit check?”

Lease to Rent Room in House:

“I am about to start renting out two rooms in my house. I will continue to occupy one of the bedrooms, and we will share access to the common spaces and outdoors. All of the sample leases I have found online are written for someone renting the entire house or unit. Does anyone have a sample lease they have used to rent out individual rooms in their house?”

Blown in Attic Insulation Recommendations:

“I need to add insulation to the my attic of my row house. The attic space gets lower as you get closer to back of the house. I am having trouble finding someone that will do the work because the height in the back (or lack there of). 3 Contractors have come by but said they will not do it. Has anyone had luck finding a contractor to do this work when the attic space gets lower on one end? I think there is about 3 feet in the lowest part.
Thanks for any help!”

Things to do in DC with group of 15 people??

“During the first weekend in August my extended family of 15 will be visiting me here in DC, from Friday-Sunday, and it’s proving very hard to plan activities! The youngest is 16, and one is unable to walk long distances due to a knee injury. Any ideas of things to do with this large group?”

Parking Space vs Yard – opinions wanted!

“I bought a townhouse in NW that has a very small backyard, which is concreted over for a parking space. Street parking is relatively easy here. In practice, given the tight alley way and awkward access, only the smallest of cars will fit back there. At the moment, there is no gate whatsoever, and for security reasons I would like to put up a fence or gate separating the space from the alley. I think I’d prefer to just put up a privacy fence and then landscape the parking space with planters, shrubbery and a bench etc (though the house already has a 2nd floor deck off the kitchen so doesn’t need more outdoor space necessarily). I thought I’d solicit your opinions on what this would do to the value of the house – is taking away what could easily be sold as a parking space to buyers going to drastically reduce the house value? Thanks in advance!”
