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.
