Washington 14-Day Notice to Quit Form | Non-Payment

Updated July 17, 2023

A Washington fourteen (14) day notice to quit is a document served by landlords to tenants who have failed to pay rent on time. It is mandatory in the state of Washington to give tenants the choice to pay rent within fourteen (14) days of receiving notice or to remove themselves from the premises, giving back possession to the landlord. If the tenant fails to pay or vacate, the landlord may then file an eviction lawsuit with the court.

When complete, the notice should be delivered in person to the tenant. If the tenant is unavailable, leaving the notice with someone else living in the residential unit is allowed but the landlord must also send a copy to the premises by certified mail. If the tenant and no other individual can be found on the property, the landlord may leave the notice attached to the property in a conspicuous place and also sending a copy by certified mail addressed to the rental unit.
