New Landlord-Tenant Laws
Many new residential lanlord-tenant laws have been enacted at both the state and local levels. State law requires a 14-day notice for residential tenants and gives tenants more procedural rights in court. Seattle, Tacoma, Burien, and Federal Way have all enacted new landlord-tenant laws. With all the new laws it is more important than ever to consult with a lawyer before taking any action.

There are several new Seattle laws regarding residential landlord-tenant law, including:
- Residential Eviction Moratorium
