Washington Rental Laws

Written on February 21, 2014 by , updated on July 24, 2017

Flag of WashingtonThis article summarizes some key Washington Landlord-Tenant laws applicable to residential rental units.

The Official State Statutes and other reputable municipal sources were used to research this information. All sources are cited appropriately.

With that said, landlord-tenant laws are always changing and you have a responsibility to perform your own research when applying the laws to your unique situation.

If you have a legal question or concern, I only recommend contacting a licensed attorney referral service that is operated by the state bar association.

  • NotNeeded

    This article has outdated information. It was created 2014- updated July 2017 but does not include some important information on caps for move-in fees, payment plans, and other stuff. The current tenant’s rights can be found at: http://www.seattle.gov/dpd/cs/groups/pan/@pan/documents/web_informational/dpdd016420.pdf

    If you are the admin, please update the information with the current tenant rights.

    • Lucas Hall

      Hi NotNeeded,

      Thanks, but this article is specific to the entire state of Washington.

      The document you linked is specific to Seattle, which has it’s own set of rules, which are often very different from the rest of the state.

      • Still-Incorrect

        Still though, the information on this page is incorrect to more than half of the population of the state of WA, those who reside in Seattle. You’re suggesting that because NotNeeded’s link is for info only pertaining to Seattle, your article is correct. NotNeeded is trying to bring the opposite to your attention — that despite this being a page for WA state laws, Seattle’s laws have upended some of the information on here so what may be correct for most of WA is patently incorrect on this page (i.e. “Security Deposit Maximum: No Statute” is 100% WRONG for the state of WA, because there ARE statutes about this now, even if not in every area). You’re giving people the wrong idea by saying that this info applies to all of WA when it doesn’t..

  • Sara J Sharp

    I have a lease in a “Senior” MHP in Pierce Co. I am told that this is a crime /drug free, “safe”, community and that “residents” who commit or attempt to commit a crime, harass, intimidate or cause undue harm to tenant’s shall be in a material violation of the lease. There are three tenants who live next to me who have proven criminal records as recent as 2016. Felony Sexual Assault, Felony Theft, Multiple harassment reports on file. One PTO in place. I am a 100% Service Connected disabled Vet. My health has deteriorated as a direct result of this environment. I have reported this to the landlord. No action taken for 2 years. Upon medical advise I must move or I risk further health damage. The cost of my move is $20,000. What can I do?

    • Nick

      Trying to understand situations little better

      Is your landlord the same as the landlord of the alleged felons/ does he have control over their tenancy?

      20k seems a little steep for a move to a place within the state that is of the same quality?. Can all this be itemized and considered under the (sensible act)

      Again not attacking you in any way I’m a landlord who also happens to be a tennant so these things interest me I may be of some help

  • Krystal W

    I have a question. I live with roommates and I’m on a lease with them. I will be moving when our lease is up. I asked the manager when the lease ended. She told me that if my roommates were not eligible (income wise) for renewal and decided to stay that management would not take me off the lease and if anything happened I would still be partly financially responsible. Is this legal?

    • Naomi

      Hi There,
      Hopefully an admin will reply to you. I’m not an attorney. However I’m 99.99% sure this is not legal. If the lease is up, no landlord can force you to sign a new lease. Or hold you to such a lease. If the lease was not up and you moved out. Then yes you could be held responsible for paying out your portion of the rent for the remainder of the lease. Unless they had another roommate move in that was paying your portion. As long as you have given proper notice that you’ll be moving out at the end of the lease. If you didn’t give proper notice you may be responsible for following months rent, to account for the proper notification period. They can’t renew your lease term after you’ve given notice regardless of what roommates do.

  • Eva

    My brother currently lives in Germany. He owns a house in Seattle that he’s renting and he just called me and asked me if I could go to the rental property and look at a few things for him since it has been over two years and he wants to see what condition he’s houses in on the interior. Do I need some kind of a form to be signed to act as my brothers agent and to be able to enter the premises After giving them 48 hour notice of intent to enter should I provide them with another letter showing the tenants that I am the designated agent for my brother? I’ve been looking online for any kind of form that is needed to be signed by me and my brother but I can’t seem to find anything . please help

  • Suzie MacQ

    I’m not finding anything on “Tenancy at Will Laws”
    We only agreed to move in and help his mother out under the conditions that she was not to have any Drugs or Lundys (drug dealers) on property. And that we will need to stay until his L&I was resolved. She moved the drug dealer/user in who robbed us and assaulted us & continues to be a threat. We have been repeatedly threatened by homeowner to be physically removed if we attempt to get help from the law. We ignored her threats and are being evicted for doing so

  • Lon Flick

    He moves into her house. Its now going on 3yrs. No lease/contract…He pays all utilities, small house repairs, toiletries, she pays mortgage. Relationship has ended on equal terms (no Fault). She says stay as long as you want until you find something, has now changed her mind. He has found a place to live but wont be avail until July/2018. She want him out in April-if not out she will involve sheriff. He needs advice/protection until July.

    Hello Lucas, hope you read this and maybe can lend some insight.

    Unfortunately I need to break my lease. I notified my apt manager and as I understand it they are required to make an effort to re-rent my unit.

    However, if I break my lease and they have a tenet lined up to move in say a week or two after I leave (leaving the apt only vacant for 2 weeks) then I understand I would be liable for two weeks worth of missed income to my apt complex.

    However, the management informed me that even if they had a new tenet able to move in the day after I left I would be charged a $3,500 early lease termination fee. Is this justified? What would happen if I didn’t pay it?

  • Rita Lyon

    My name is Rita Lyon. My husban d and I have rented a house in Edmonds, Wa. For the last 15 years, first on a 36 month lease, then month to month.
    Approximately a month ago, the landlord called and said that an insurance guy was coming over the next day to make sure everything was up to code and in his words, “If anything is wrong, your rent is going up!” When the guy showed up, he was followed by about 7 more cars. When my husband inquired about why so many people were there, the guy said, “Well, I’m kind of an insurance guy, and they are here to look at the house.”
    We paid the rent as usual, unfortunately in cash this time, as he occasionally asked for. We do not have a receipt, as he has never given us one.
    When it came

    • Nick

      You need to learn your rights…

      He can’t raise rent if your in a contract
      He shouldn’t be accepting cash without a receipt

      • Rita Lyon

        I am trying to learn what my rights are. If someone bought the house, should I have been notified? What do I do if he claims we did not pay rent because he has no record of ANYTHING?

  • Ticia

    I did not find anything about when the rental in is sold. My landlord sold the home we are renting month to month with no notice. The sale finalizes in a few days . I am wondering how long we have to finishing moving out once the sale is finalized? If any. I’m not trying mess anything up for anyone. And I’m packing and putting everything in storage. Just wondering if I am at the mercy of the new owner.

    • Nick

      You are and you arent at the same time. The property is occupied and because so , the purchaser is subject to tenants rights . In washington. You have to be provided written notice that your lease will end.If not the buyer must do so.
      I am currently in the same situation but on opposite sides . Being the purchaser and it’s not good for anyone when you have a shitty landlord that bnb doesn’t want to keep ppl in the loop

      • Ticia

        Thanks. The only thing that I have been given in writing was a typed note from the landlord saying that I had to let the appraser in.

        • Nick

          Thats not good enough ,, I believe they changed the amount of time he needs to formally give you and if not him then the purchaser. It’s no less than 20 days though.. the landlord in me sais dont tell you this but even if you were past 20 days without a lease if you didnt move out he would still have to evict you and that can take upwards of a month itself ( not saying that’s good route to go because it’s not, hope that helped

          • Ticia

            It helps me understand it a bit more. I don’t think he meant to do things the wrong way. He is very old. I just wasn’t sure where I was at with possibly not having everything out when the new owner takes posession. They are want to move in as we move out so they don’t have to pay another month on the rental they are in. I certainly don’t want evicted. I have secured a temporary month to month while I look for something to buy myself.

  • Sara

    Hi There, I own a house in WA state. I’ve been renting it for 8 months. The tenants haven’t been paying the rent on time. I want to move back into my house but have one year lease agreement with the tenants. What are my options to move back into my house?
    Thank you

    • Nick

      Eviction ,,,Washington state can be pretty fast about it under a month ), best bet is to tell them either I evict u or u can leave free and clear ( u keep deposit ) works more often than not .
      Make sure u get that signed and do not invite them back in the house for anything after they leave

  • Tho

    My apartment manager raise the rent for new lease to $250.00/month. The price of current lease is $1,050.00 .that amount is over 10% of the rent payment now. Is the landlord has the right to raise that much. Thank you very much for your answer

    • Nick

      Washington isn’t a rent controlled state..here the only stipulation is the notice he has to give you.i believe its 60 days dont quote me on that

  • Christine

    I had a year lease that ended in September. The landlord just emailed me asking if I wanted to extend it to a 6 mo. or year lease or a month to month. We responded to email saying we will do 6 more months. The apartment unit has become very loud and now they took the signs down for non smoking and the new tenants smoke. We would like to move before the 6 months, does the email lock us in the lease since we did not actually sign?

  • Joe

    I renewed my lease for another year last month. Today I received a notice that stating next month 30 days) it will be a non smoking rental. Can a landlord just change my lease like that or do they have to wait until my new lease expires and then add a nonsmoking addendum?? Also is there any law that I can cite when I write a letter??

  • Jean Jones

    Tenant used phoney name to rent a room from us meant for low income tenant. Tenant has trust, containing houses and cash. Still using phoney name he is now trying to get into VOA subsidized housing. Tenant is a nightmare, used us (elderly disabled couple ) to make expensive ($4,000) improvements to his room, took advantage of our cheap rent for 1 1/2 years, we only found out his real name from trust documents we saw sitting in our communal mailbox. Is tenant breaking any law to be using phoney name to hide assets so he qualifies for subsidized housing? Gets food stamps too, I believe. His asset search says he co-owner 2 large houses, cash in Los Angeles along with his relative.

  • Lisa Rivera

    We have livedvin this house 7 years. It was chopped up and made into a four plex. With out pemits and code inspections.
    There has been major problems with electric a few were fixed but not all.
    Owner told all units a year ago he was selling.
    Within this ladt year we all have been disrupeted with people in and our.
    Well it was sold and we were all to we had 20 days to get out. Can they do that

    • Nick

      Youve got a couple of issues here, they dont really pertain to each other, they seem to help build a case of dislike towards your landlord.
      Is he an inconsiderate landlord. Yes he sounds like one. 20 days notice is I believe the minimum time in Washington. As far as the building without permits goes, better to ask to end your lease early next time. Maybe comment on conditions and his illegal activity.

      When you check out a place, make sure you get an idea of your landlord
      1 ask what happened to last tennants , gauge his answer,
      2 take note of condition , lots of easy cheap fixes around?

  • Angela Timko

  • Glenn

    A family member has been living with my mom for several years. He has never paid rent, or paid any expenses for food or utilities. My mom is now in assisted living, and as her power of attorney, I need to sell her house so that she can afford her rent. My question is: in Washington state, is a family member who has never paid expenses or rent considered a tenant or licensee? Do I need to go through the legal process to evict him, or can I simply ask him to leave and remove his belongings without any legal proceedings? Thanks in advance for your assistance…

  • Sophia Dunaway

    I have been in my apartment for over six years. I am a 78 year old widow ,am disabled and in a fixed income. My question, is there any point at which a landlord is required to replace carpeting?? I have the carpets cleaned twice a year at the cost of $150.00 each time. It is now like cleaning bedsheets as there is no body to said carpets,after six years they are simply worn out. I asked the office manager about this and was told that there is nothing to cover this. I was given to understand that if I love here for twenty years it will be with a twenty year old carpet. Comments?? Help??

  • Louann

    I’m trying to understand how to evict my boyfriend. I moved into my apartment in Mt Vernon 8 years ago with a month to month rental agreement. Six months after I rented it, my boyfriend moved in with me. I asked my landlord if this was okay, he said yes and he didn’t want any info on him. I’ve tried in vain to get the boyfriend to move out but he won’t go. I can’t afford an attorney. My question is can I fill out the notice to terminate tenancy form (20 day notice)and serve him myself? If I send it to him and he has to sign for it he won’t answer the door. Thank you.


    • Nick Ramundo

      U sure know how to pick em Anne. Anyways that’s a sad situation that trust me is sometimes not worth the trouble .. you did however stayed that your on month to month now so how about just letting it end , getting your name off the lease and moving yourself ,, this is going to probably be the cheapest most hassle free way. Their are many things a bad tennat ,boyfriend can do to prolong the process.
      To answer your question yes you can do the whole eviction process yourself

  • Rebecca Henson

    My daughter who is in the army, while station in Hawaii was being transferred to Washington . Not being able to find apartment in Washington while in Hawaii. She contacted a apartment complex who she gave deposit and first months rent upfront. Waiting her time for a walk thru and to determine if she would accept apartment. She was given no email of confirmation of receipt nor a copy of check list or renters agreement. Upon our arrival to walk through apartment. No one walked thru apartment with us , no agreement was signed, no check list given. My daughter decided not to get apartment. They are refusing to refund deposit and first month rent. Need help with how to handle

    • Nick ramundo

      You gave first months rent and a deposit to rent the apartment . Not for the chance to view it and decide whether you should accept the apartment..
      That’s not how it works bud .
      Sounds like the manager is refusing because they took it off the market to give it to u. Also 8t shoukd go without saying that you shouldn’t fork over that type of cash without reciept of payment ,, which in turn would probably prove your story about paying (just to view the apartment false))
      This little story was very unconvincing almost offensive, please dont use millitary service to strike a fake problem as a real one. It makes landlords not trust you guys as a whole

      • Rebecca Henson

        I thank you for your comment, and disagree with your comment about the military. To me the manager took advantage of someone in the military in another state who could not be there. Our military serves to protect you and everyone else. Moving is difficult for most and they rely on trust from everyone. So all do respect and you are intitled to your opinion but the Washington state law would disagree with you. I am not trying to convince you or anyone else , wrong is wrong . I asked for legal advice not personal opinion. Facts and laws not opinions

        • Nick Frederick Ramundo

          I’m a landlord with multiple properties in washington for years now.There is no such thing as paying a deposit and first months rent just to view an apartment. U got there and decided you didnt want it and now you want your money back which isnt fair to everyone else who were trying to get in that same unit. I deal with entitled ppl like you all the time

          If it means anything I’ve even had a soldier do the same thing to me ,,, convincing me to give them the apartment without being there and then when they show up they either got their orders and location changed or they simply changed their mind ,leaving me out 2k if I gave it back , I simply do not rent to anyone without them being on location anymore because of situations like yours ,,

          • Rebecca Henson

            Thank you for your opinion, still your opinions and your choice as a landlord. Every situation is different. I am need of help with laws and facts. I am sorry you take your past experience , to help in this current situation. Compassion and kindness and understanding from all would be helpful in today’s world. I wish you the best,

          • Nick Frederick Ramundo

            You want facts heres facts

            1u obviously didnt pay in cash / use the transfer records to prove you paid the apartment for the apartment in court
            2you will run into trouble if the apartment proves you signed for the place
            3 as a military member stay in the barracks while you search for a place in person next time :)

  • Silvia

    So I moved into a place a few months ago. I have read my lease, which is for 1 year. For the past 3 weeks I have been hanging out with a friend at my apartment. They have not stayed over except for maybe two nights. However they were not consecutive nights. My lease only states that I can not have subletters, Lodgers, or roomers. It does not have a clause about guest. My landlord is threatening me with an eviction for violating the lease. But I do not feel that I have done this. When I spoke with the landlord they stated they need to have notification of overnight guests, run a background check on them, and would charge me additional rent. None of that is in the signed lease. Can they evict me?

  • dd

    i rent an apartment subsidized by Section 8 because of disability – my landlord allowed entry to a caregiver without notice or permission, is this legal?

    My husband and I are currently in search for a rental and ran into a 2 bedroom 1 bath apartment and has no flooring, it’s just the concrete foundation. Can the landlord still attempt to rent out the property even though there is no flooring? And charge you as the tenant for it?

    Can my rental company legally charge me a non refundable pet deposit of $700 plus monthly pet rent of $75?

    I need to break my lease to take care of my elderly mom in a different state. How will this effect me breaking my lease?
