If the tenant is even 1 day behind on rent, the landlord may begin the eviction process by serving a 3 Day Notice to pay rent or vacate. If the tenant does not pay rent within 3 days of notice being served, the landlord may file a forcible entry and detainer complaint and summons.

Service of Notice: The landlord or his representative must attempt to deliver the eviction notices in person. If the tenant is not home, the landlord or their agent may leave the notice with someone at the residence. If landlord leaves the notice with someone other than the tenant, he must also mail a copy. If nobody is home, the landlord or agent can post the notice at the rental property. If notice is posted, a copy must also be mailed.

IMPORTANT: In Washington State, this notice will NOT suffice as a proper notice for eviction from Manufactured/ Mobile Homes.

Prior to filing a complaint in court for non-payment of rent, a 14 Day Notice is required.

Who: Give this notice to a tenant who is behind on rent beyond any grace period, if applicable.

What: Notice to Pay Rent or Vacate warns the tenant to pay the amount due, vacate the premises, or face eviction.

When: This notice is given to a tenant 14 days prior to filing a complaint.

Please Note: If the tenant pays the total amount due, the landlord must accept payment and not proceed with the eviction, however a landlord is not required to accept partial payment.
