Distribution of Information to Tenants
The following is a set of guidelines for landlords to follow to be in compliance with TMC 1.95.030- Distribution of Information to Tenants. Distributing information to tenants is required at three different phases in the rental process.
Step 1: At the time of rental application, the landlord must provide the tenant with the following website along with written rental criteria. Tenants will be able to access information about code violations, findings on discrimination cases, and register to vote.
Step 2: When a rental agreement or lease is offered, the landlord must provide the tenant with a written copy of the summaries of rights and responsibilities prepared by the City. This information must also be provided to current tenants within thirty (30) days from date the code goes into effect.
Step 3: If during tenancy, a landlord must serve a tenant with a notice under RCW 59.12.030 or TMC 1.95, the landlord is also required to serve the notice of resources prepared by the City. These notices are included in the Tenant Information Packet. However, you can also access them in the Landlord Resources section on the Rental Housing Code website.
If you have any questions please call 311 or 253-591-5000
Thank you for your continued partnership.
