AccessEvictions.com is published by a Washington eviction attorney who performs both residential and commercial evictions. You will find free eviction forms for Washington and other states. Before choosing, completing, or using a particular eviction form it is best to get legal advice about your circumstances and about state and local landlord-tenant law.
Washington state evictions.
We represent landlords in King, Pierce, and Snohomish counties in the state of Washington.
We offer two eviction plans, a “fast-track” eviction and a “pay-as-you-go” eviction. The “pay-as-you-go eviction” costs less up front, but can take longer. Nothing is filed in court until it is necessary to do so, potentially saving court costs. With a “fast-track” eviction the case is filed and a hearing set initially, rather than waiting for the tenant to respond to the complaint. This costs more up front but can be faster in some circumstances.
Washington landlord-tenant law is governed by statutes such as the unlawful detainer statute and the Residential Landlord-Tenant Act, and by a long line of landlord-tenant case law. Local ordinances are also important in Washington landlord-tenant law, especially in Seattle.
A Seattle residential landlord may not evict a tenant except for just cause. This is true even if the tenant is month-to-month. Failure to pay rent and other material breaches of the rental agreement are just cause to evict. Other examples of just cause require that the tenant be month-to-month. For example, a landlord who wishes to move back into the rental property may not evict a residential tenant with an unexpired lease, but if the tenant is month-to-month this is just cause. Note that the just cause eviction ordinance applies only to residential tenancies, and does not apply to commercial rentals. Also, outside Seattle just cause is not required to evict a month-to-month tenant. For Seattle residential tenancies, be sure to use our Seattle specific eviction forms, rather than the Washington state eviction forms.
This site provides useful and important information about Washington landlord-tenant law. Still, the application of landlord-tenant law to your situation is best analyzed by a landlord-tenant attorney. Get legal advice before acting.
We launched this site over twelve years ago for our eviction service. We started getting landlord-tenant inquiries from everywhere in the US, not just the local jurisdictions where we perform evictions. We added an attorney directory. If you are a landlord with a property in King, Pierce, or Snohomish counties in Washington please contact us. If you have rental properties in other locations please see the Landlord Attorney Directory to find an attorney in your area. Note that we are not affiliated with nor are we endorsing the law firms listed in the directory.
