The Washington State Landlord Tenant Act defines the landlord as anyone designated as a representative of the owner, including, but not limited to, an agent, resident manager or property manager.  The landlord is required to provide a mailing address either in the lease or prominently displayed at the rental property.  The law further requires any landlord who resides outside of the state to have a designated representative within the county where the rental property is located.

One Response to DEFINE A “LANDLORD”

    This is a great definition of a landlord. It’s a simple term but can become hard to define because of complicated laws and sometimes synonymous use of these type of titles. This article does a good job at clearing a lot of that and giving a simple explanation of who a landlord is.
