Well this is rather cool. Last week’s legal question about basement apartments has sparked a new Web site from DCRA. It is called Rent Your DC Basement Apartment Legally. They say:

“Yesterday, the Department of Consumer and Regulatory Affairs (DCRA) ending up in a huge conversation about the fears, misconceptions, challenges, issues and obstacles facing DC residents who are either considering renting their basement as a rental property, buying a home with a basement apartment they plan to rent, currently renting their basement apartment (legally and illegally) and other various scenarios. The District of Columbia is filled with basement apartments and entire generations of folks have at one point or another lived underneath other people.”

Check back here as they populate the Web site with helpful info.
