Dear PoPville – Advice for Renting my Rowhouse

Photo by PoPville flickr user sophiagrrl

Dear PoPville,

I am interested in renting my 2-bedroom house in Columbia Heights (I would not be living there). I am very confused about the process for doing so. On one hand I read that I need to get a business license and certificate of occupancy. On the other, I’m told there are different classes of rental properties and a single-family home like mine doesn’t have the same requirements. What is the process? I don’t even know where to find tools or guidance on advertising and applications? I was hoping to get some advice from the PoP folks out there who have been through this. Thank you.
