Eviction Attorney Vancouver, WA
*We do not represent tenants, we only represent landlords and property owners.*
Landlords and tenants have specific duties that they must follow. Unfortunately, there are landlords and tenants who do not follow state and/or federally mandated duties. Other times, a landlord or a tenant might not follow the terms of their lease – a binding contract between the parties. Salmon Creek Law Offices is here to help guild you through these complexities.
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).
