I have been notified that the Governor's office will be extending the statewide eviction moratorium through May 4 and possibly longer. I have also learn that the Attorney General is interpreting the Proclamation to prohibit landlords from charging late fees across the entire state.
We expect any extension or renewal of the current Proclamation to include specific language to this effect.
The Proclamation put in place on March 18 states:
The statewide Proclamation applies to all rental properties where a local ban has not been enacted. Many local jurisdictions have also enacted eviction moratorium and limitations on charging late fees. A full list of Washington's emergency laws related to eviction can be found here.
Thank you to Brett Waller from the Washington Multi-family Housing Association.
