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 34 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: 1-888-753-9150 begin_of_the_skype_highlighting 1-888-753-9150 FREE  end_of_the_skype_highlighting

Biography – Tim Seth

Founder and executive officer of Washington Landlord Association, Tim has owned, managed and maintained 26 rental properties with 96 rental units in Olympia, Seattle, and Yakima. An engineering graduate from WSU, he took graduate university business courses and served as a corporate business education administrator for a large mid-west manufacturing company.

Returning to the Northwest, Tim set up a 55-shareholder Washington rental property investment corporation…implementing his innovative investment leverage models (that still apply today… see Resource Center, “Financial”). He followed with licenses as an engineer in-training, general contractor, and real estate agent (with training in property appraising). He also operated an independent rental management and repair business for 7 years…proving to be quite handy with tools and resolving hands-on tenant issues.

His past public service includes chair of the Thurston County Housing Authority, project lead for State WAC personnel law development, staff for the Washington Executive Salary Commission, member the Washington Comparable Worth Committee, AG designated advisory contact for rental owners calling the Washington Attorney General’s Office, and many public and private housing ad hoc committees.

Throughout his landlord career, Tim has also served as Chair of the Washington Apartment Association state-wide Political Action Committee, and later as an officer, volunteer lobbyist, and essayist in state and local landlord associations. In response to increasing fair-housing regulations, Tim developed WLA’s bias-free tenant selection scoring system patterned after long-established civil service employment testing standards, and later, field-easy models to implement new state-mandated screening disclosure regulations. Currently, he is sitting on a variety of State/County/City landlord-tenant code committees. He enjoys contributing to the web site, and assisting landlord, tenant, and government official callers.
