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.
