Rental forms, reference material, advisory bulletins, vendor listings, rent surveys, state & local laws, hand-outs, landlord basics, screening, collections, management and maintenance tips, and much more available on-line to all WLA members.
WLA Rental Forms have been developed to reflect the latest in Washington State landlord-tenant law and court rulings, as well as meeting practical field conditions for hands-on landlords and managers anywhere in Washington. In addition, WLA’s rental agreements have several built-in liability protection features with escape clauses. (Special code dictated forms are also provided for WLA Seattle landlords and managers.) Developed in concert with WLA’s Legal Advisory Committee, WLA forms are field tested to cover all the essential legal and management elements in successfully operating a rental in Washington.
For WLA screening, be sure to click and print out WLA Forms 49 and 50. They are self explanatory.
WLA’s Resource Center provides a variety of advisory bulletins including WLA’s popular “21 Landlording Basics” and “Using the Right Rental Form” by clicking the “Resources” icon then clicking “Basics”. All applicable State and Seattle Landlord laws (including lead paint and mold phamplets) are also included along with dozens of other write-ups of importance to landlords and managers.
WLA also provides an on-going listing of over 350 vendor members available across the state. These merchants have expressed an interest in serving the landlord sector and are removed if proved to not meet WLA standards.
WLA’s free telephone help line has proven very popular to the starter or experienced member: 360-493-2204
