Where can I find information about unlawful detainer?

Chapter 59.18 RCW (The Residential Landlord-Tenant Act) addresses the duties, obligations, and responsibilities in residential landlord-tenant situations.  There are also self-help legal resources at www.washingtonlawhelp.org.  These resources include information on landlord-tenant issues, including evictions.

Depending on the applicants economic resources and other factors, a person may also receive legal advice on unlawful detainers from the Northwest Justice Project -  http://www.nwjustice.org/.

The Northwest Justice Project has toll-free phone numbers for people who may be eligible for their free legal services for low-income people in non-criminal matters:
