1320 Nicholson tenants rally, meet with city officials over unpaid refunds for illegal rent hike

The landlord at 1320 Nicholson St owes but has not been paying tenants refunds for an illegal rent hike invalidated by the DC courts.Since a new management company took over the building conditions have deteriorated and this illegal rent hike was attempted, possibly in an attempt to clear out the building. On the 22nd of June, tenants rallied outside and met with councilmember Anita Bonds and Councilmember-elect Rober White(GOP never wins in DC) demanding action to recover the money they are owed and fix the building.

During the rally, tenants of another building managed by the same company reported rats AND roaches AND bedbugs had all moved in on this company’s watch.
