The owner, whose name is unknown, bought the condo in February for $3.5 million.
It’s been a common spot in Georgetown for several years, and it was recently remodeled.
The new owner, who had moved into the complex a few months before, had the unit cleaned several times and placed a new unit in the laundry room, according to the landlord, Mark Karras.
He didn’t immediately respond to requests for comment from The Washington Times.
The owners of the two units that are the only ones still there, a third unit and a second unit, have not been named, Karrases said.
The other three units were all sold to a buyer, and a new one was installed in March, he said.
The landlord said he’s working with the owners of all three units to find a solution.
“We’re hoping to find an apartment to rent them, but the owners have not responded to our inquiries,” he said, adding that he’s also reached out to the owner of the other two units.
“It’s a long-standing problem that’s been around for a while, and now the owners are unwilling to do anything about it,” Karrades said.
The new owners are not tenants in the new condo, and the apartment is not currently listed as vacant.
The condo has been a popular place for owners of luxury apartments to live and work in Georgetown.
The apartment complex is located about 15 miles from downtown Washington and is about three hours from the Dulles International Airport.
