Washington’s Just Cause Eviction Ordinance allows a landlord to give notice to vacate to a tenant if the owner wants to sell a single-family home?  The law has this definition of a single-family home.

A “single-family residence” is a structure maintained and used as a single dwelling unit. Notwithstanding that a dwelling unit shares one or more walls with another dwelling unit, it shall be deemed a single-family residence if it has direct access to a street and shares neither heating facilities nor hot water equipment, nor any other essential facility or service, with any other dwelling unit.

A definition of “essential facility or service” is not yet defined by law.
