Description: Just Cause "Eviction" laws restrict the rights of the landlord to terminate month-to-month tenancies. Introduced to Seattle in 1981, similar laws are now in place across the states of California and Oregon, as well as the WA cities of Federal Way and Burien. A state-wide version will be proposed in Washington State's 2020 Legislative Session. This 90-minute webinar provides an overview of Seattle's "Just Cause" ordinance and the variations spreading along the west coast. Instructor, Jeffrey S. Bennett has been representing Northwest landlords in diverse legal matters for more than 25 years. His articles have appeared in The Business Journal, Apartments Northwest, and in other media, and he is a frequent lecturer at regional landlord/tenant seminars.
