“Dear PoPville,

We absolutely love the Waterfront area and the experience in living in this part of DC has been very positive, however we are having very serious issues with our condominium association. When we moved we were aware the building does a mandatory “water shut-off” in weekdays once every 2 months, this lasts from 9am to about 3pm. We are ok with that, the majority of the time we’ve been at work and it has not affected us.

Fast forward to last year’s pandemic, for safety and health reasons these water shut-offs were temporarily cancelled (fine by us, we work from home now). However in these past few months, we have had multiple water shut-offs Read More

“Dear PoPville,

I live in a large apartment complex near the DC wharf. We have been told by the building’s management that due to COVID we are not allowed to have guests – even in our own apartments! Is this even legal? Can they restrict us from having people over, even when those guests are wearing masks as they enter the property? This large building isn’t full and the leasing office has guests (strangers) visit daily (wearing masks) who tour the property with the intent to lease. How is management allowed guests and paying residents aren’t. I don’t think they can legally restrict us but I was hoping someone might have some insight into this.”
