DOMESTIC VIOLENCE & WASHINGTON STATE

A tenant may terminate a lease if the tenant or a member of the tenant’s household is a victim of domestic violence, sexual assault or stalking and the tenant or household member has obtained a protection order or has reported the matter. The tenant must present a copy of the protection order or written record of a police report to the landlord and request termination of the lease within ninety days of the event.

A landlord may neither terminate, refuse to enter into a lease, nor refuse to renew a tenancy based on the status of the tenant or a member of the tenant’s household as a victim of domestic violence, sexual assault or stalking.
