I live in the Washington, DC area, and difference in landlord vs. tenant rights in Washington, Virginia and Maryland is amazing and makes being a landlord much more attractive in Virginia.

In DC and Maryland, the law is much more stacked in favor of the tenant. In Virginia, for example, if a tenant stops paying you can have them evicted with only five days notice. In DC and Maryland it's much more complicated.
