Tips for renting in Seattle, WA

If you’re looking to move to Seattle from Portland, you will notice that people are more obsessed with education—there are dozens of universities here. In Seattle, landlords are required to give a minimum of 30 days’ notice of the termination of a year-to-year lease contract. A month-to-month agreement continues until either the landlord or tenant gives the other a written notice at least 20 days before the end of the rental period. Tenants come under the Washington State Residential Landlord-Tenant Act, which is although very similar to Portland’s current legislation, there are some important differences. For example, with a month-to-month rental agreement, either you or your landlord can end the agreement with a 30-day written notice in Seattle. In Portland, however, tenants are required to give a 90-day notice for no-cause evictions—the landlord does not have to tell you the reason for the 90-day notice, yet the reason must be a lawful one.
