In the State of Washington, landlords cannot use “self-help” to oust a tenant from a residential rental premises. Unless the tenant voluntarily leaves on his or her own, a landlord must use the court process to obtain a writ of restitution. A writ of restitution is a document from the court that gives the local sheriff the power to evict a tenant on the landlord’s behalf.

The proper legal process must be followed, and one misstep can force the landlord to start the process all over again.

An “ejectment” is a similar process when one person (generally the true owner of the residential property) seeks to oust another person from the premises. Here, the parties are not engaged in a traditional landlord-tenant relationship.

Aaron generally, at Salmon Creek Law Offices represents residential/commercial landlords (evictions) and homeowners (ejectments).
