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

THE LANGUAGE NEEDED FOR THE CITY OF SEATTLE:

If you need help understanding this notice or information about your renter rights, call the Renting in Seattle Helpline (206) 684-5700 or visit the website at www.seattle.gov/rentingseattle.

City law entitles you to pay overdue rent in instalments. If your landlord does not accept payment according to the instalment schedule, you may raise this as a defense to eviction in court. 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 that you may raise in court.

If you are a Veteran of the U.S. Military, you may be able to access housing resources by calling 2-1-1 or contacting the King County Veterans Program for assistance with rent, relocation, or other support services.
