Commonly Used Forms

Below are most of the forms that our clients need to begin an eviction.
Just a note to remind you: if the tenant in question is a subsidized tenant (i.e. Section 8), you will need to use the Section 8 form.

For more information regarding the use of these forms, please refer to the FAQs.

 

Please note that we are changing to new software, and that will require a single email with a single attachment per email.   Any new evictions to start will require a separate email per new eviction with a single attachment with all of the required forms– the notice, lease, ledger, and application for tenancy.   

All general emails should be sent to info@puckettredford.com

Please email info@puckettredford.com

If you cannot pay rent, during or within 6 months after the end of the Mayor’s moratorium on evictions, your inability to pay is a defense to eviction that you may raise in court. If you cannot pay rent due during the civil emergency proclaimed by Mayor Durkan on March 3, 2020, your inability to pay is a defense to eviction that you may raise in court. City law requires a landlord to offer a reasonable schedule for repayment of unpaid rent that accrued between March 3, 2020, and six months following the termination of the civil emergency proclaimed by Mayor Durkan on March 3, 2020. If your landlord does not offer such a repayment plan or give you 14 days to accept a reasonable repayment plan before proceeding with an unlawful detainer action, you may raise this as a defense to eviction in court.
