Did you know... July 27, 2020


That the governor extended the eviction moratorium to October 15th?  This is the third extension and includes prohibitions from previous proclamations:

~Rent cannot be increased,

~Late fees cannot be charged, 

~A “reasonable” payment plan must be offered if tenants are having trouble paying rent, and

~Tenants cannot be required to vacate at the end of the lease, even if the tenant is on a month-to-month rental agreement. 

~The landlord may give a 60-day notice to vacate if the owner wants to move in the rental home or sell it.

~The proclamation calls for the formation of “an informal workgroup” to consider potential changes to the eviction moratorium if it needs to be extended again.

~In addition, Governor Inslee calls for the legislature to address, “the specific parameters for reasonable re-payment plans related to outstanding rent or fees.”
