“Dear PoPville,

My friends and I have casually chatted in the past about going in on a single family home or townhouse together and then converting it into 3-4 apartments that we each could live in. Has anyone who isn’t a developer done this before and have any advice on permits, regulations, etc.? What did you end up having to spend on both the reno (4 kitchens!) and paperwork, etc? Is it costly to split one deed into four deeds? I clearly have many questions but am curious to see if anyone else has done this in DC and what their experience is!”
