Dear PoPville – Rent Control Question

Photo by PoPville flickr user Mr. T in DC

“Dear PoPville,

I own a grouphouse in Columbia Heights and am in the market for a 4 unit property in the Capitol Hill. If I acquire the four unit in Cap Hill, is my grouphouse considered a 5th unit whereby forcing me to abide by rent control laws? Or, would I simply own two rental homes, one of which has four separate apartments.”
