Redman v. Potomac Place Associates
District of Columbia Court of Appeals
972 A.2d 316 (2009)
Deborah Redman (defendant) was a tenant in an apartment building. The building, located in the District of Columbia, was owned by Potomac Place Associates, LLC (Potomac) (plaintiff). Potomac wanted to convert the building from rental units into condominiums. Hence, Potomac sent Redman a notice to vacate, which stated that she was required to vacate the apartment by September 30, 2006. But Redman refused to vacate the apartment by this date. Subsequently, Potomac filed suit, seeking to evict Redman from the apartment. While the eviction case was pending, the District of Columbia Council enacted a statute. The statute provided that owners converting rental units to condominiums were prohibited from evicting low-income, disabled tenants. The statute became effective on November 16, 2006. Redman contended that she was entitled to protection under the statute. The trial court rejected Redman’s argument. Redman appealed.
