TACOMA WASHINGTON – NEW RENTAL LAWS

Tacoma’s new rental housing code includes a requirement that landlords provide information about tenant rights to current and future tenants. 

  • When a tenant applies for a rental, they can be given the information via link, www.cityoftacoma.org/rentalhousingcode.     
  • When a tenant is given a lease to sign, they must receive a hardcopy of the information and the landlord must receive acknowledgement of receipt. https://cms.cityoftacoma.org/OEHR/rentalhousing/TenantInformationPacket.pdf  
  • All existing tenants are to be given this information in written form and, “landlords must obtain tenant’s signature documenting receipt of such information. If the landlord gives a tenant a notice of violation, the landlord must include a “notice of resources.”
