THE UNDERSIGNED client hereby agrees to contract with LandlordSolutions, Inc. for assistance in tenant evictions. LandlordSolutions shall act as an agent for the client. The client agrees to provide LandlordSolutions with complete and accurate information with regard to the client’s tenant. The client agrees to keep LandlordSolutions informed of any issues or changes with regard to the tenant and the tenancy during the eviction process.
The client acknowledges that LandlordSolutions does not give legal advice. On your behalf LandlordSolutions, Inc. will consult with and retain an attorney to represent you. LandlordSolutions will pay for the attorney’s services pursuant to our agreement. LandlordSolutions may not interfere with the attorney’s professional judgment or the client-lawyer relationship and by signing our agreement you are giving informed consent pursuant to the Rules of Professional Conduct Rule 1.8(f) and RPC 5.4(d). The lawyer’s name, address and Washington State Bar number will be provided to you. The client agrees to pay the following rates for the following services:
Draft Tenant Notice $150.00* (includes process service)

Show Cause Hearing $750.00 – $950.00*

** This fee is set by the Sheriff Departments of each county and will vary. The client agrees to pay the charges required to process the writ of restitution. This fee includes posting the writ and a deputy being onsite for one hour of civil standby time during the physical eviction. If the deputy is required to be onsite beyond the first hour you may be charged an additional $65.00 per hour by the sheriff department and invoiced through LandlordSolutions.
These rates do not apply if the tenant has an attorney that is representing them; if the eviction requires other legal services beyond what is described above. Those special cases will be discussed with the client.
The client acknowledges that LandlordSolutions does not make any guarantee with regard to the outcome of the eviction.
The client acknowledges that should a show cause hearing be set, they must appear at the hearing or risk losing the case.
The client agrees to pay the (above) rates for services as outlined above. Payment is due and owing at the completion of services by LandlordSolutions. Invoices will be emailed to you unless you request otherwise. The client agrees to be fully responsible for the above charges. If the client fails to pay the charges within fifteen (15) days from the “Invoice Date” a late fee of $75.00 may be charged on balances of $200.00 or more; for balances less than $200.00 a late fee of $25.00 may be charged. A $35.00 fee will be charged on all returned checks plus any late fees and interest. Past due balances shall bear interest at one and one-half (1.5%) per month until paid.
