Notice of Intent to Sell

What Is It?

The Notice of Intent to Sell ordinance reauthorized by Council in 2019, provides the City with information about the intention to sell residential rental property with at least one unit rented at 80% of Area Median Income (AMI) or below. The City, in partnership with the Seattle Housing Authority and community partners, can use the notification information to evaluate properties and deploy a range of property preservation tools, including incentives and acquisition. The notice can also help residents seek tenant protections and relocation resources if necessary. For questions regarding the ordinance, please contact Jessica Gomez at jessica.gomez@seattle.gov.  

To determine whether a unit rent is affordable to a household earning 80% of AMI please refer to the schedule below. Please be sure to account for any utilities the tenant is responsible for:
