    Living in Spokane, WA

    Spokane was designated as an All-American City by the National Civic League.

    It offers something for everyone – it truly does. From outdoor enthusiasts eager to explore 3,800+ acres of park area to theater goers wanting to see a great show at the Bing Crosby Theater, it's a great place to call home.

    Tips for Renting in Spokane

    Ready to enjoy the beauty of Spokane? We bet! Here's a glimpse at some of the rental rights in Spokane.

    Landlords have the legal right to increase rent as much as they see fit once your lease period ends – Washington State forbids rent control by law.

    Once your landlord has been notified of needed repairs, there's a certain time limit they have to adhere to. For instance, they have 24 hours to provide hot or cold water, heat or electricity; 72 hours to repair major plumbing fixtures; and 10 days or less for other repairs.

    Rental agreements will vary from complex to complex, so it's important to read through your entire lease prior to signing.
