A Washington 14-day notice to quit for non-payment of rent is a written correspondence announcing to a tenant they’ve failed to pay rent on time. This notice lets tenants pay the overdue rent within the next 14 days or leave the property. If the tenant ignores the notice and doesn’t meet either requirement, the landlord can file an eviction lawsuit.
A landlord must deliver the notice properly to ensure it has legal authority. They should ideally deliver it in person to the tenant, but they can also affix it to their property in an obvious location and send a copy via certified mail.
