Notice

For Snohomish County, please review new Standing Order signed on June 15, 2022.

 

Potential evictions for unpaid rent from March 1, 2020, until the present are now subject to the Eviction Resolution Pilot Program (ERPP), as enacted in April 2021 (SB 5160 Section 7, RCW 59.18.630).

Landlords must engage the ERPP process before an eviction for unpaid rent may proceed to court. ERPP begins when a landlord serves a tenant and sends the local dispute resolution center an ERPP Notice along with a Notice to Pay Rent or Vacate and the repayment plan offered to the tenant(s) at least 14 days prior to sending the notices to ERPP.

 

In some counties where a landlord sent these notices during the eviction moratorium or Bridge period for rent due from March 2020 through July 2021, new notices may be required under the ERPP.

 

For unpaid rent due between August and October 2021 only, previous ERPP Notices and 14 Day Notices to Pay or Vacate may be sufficient. Landlords and tenants are encouraged to consult legal counsel.
