Receiving Notice to Move Out

If your landlord unexpectedly issues you a notice to terminate your rental agreement, review it right away. Notices given in the City of Seattle must comply with both state and city regulations. If you need help to review and understand whether it's a valid notice you can call the Renting in Seattle Helpline (206) 684-5700.

  • If you have a rental agreement for a term, check where it says how the agreement will end.

If you are a month by month tenant OR you have a rental agreement for a term that automatically converts to a month by month agreement your landlord must give you a just cause reason to terminate your tenancy.
