When To Give Notice To Tenants

evictionAs a landlord or rental property owner, you are probably familiar with tenants that may pay late or possibly the renters that just don’t take care of their property. In most cases, many of these situations can be resolved with a simple conversation, but what happens when the problem is ongoing and the conversation doesn’t work? At this point, as a landlord or property owner it may be time to issue your tenants a formal notice. This article from the Seattle Times, by Sean Martin, director of external affairs of the Rental Housing Association of Washington has some great tips and advice on how to successfully and legally give a tenant notice for an offending action. In many cases, there are certain ways to serve the notice, whether it be mailed from the city of the rental property or posted conspicuously to the front door of the property. If you are not familiar with the legal aspects of posting or serving notices you can gather more information from the Rental Housing Association of Washington website or another option might be to hire a property management company that is familiar with all the legal aspects that may effect your rental property and is up to date on all the changing laws and policies.
