Hi! My name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you!
You need not worry. Just stay where you are. He can force you out that quickly even if you are not on the lease. You have much more time before they can make you leave. You are considered an "at will" tenant, which is treated legally as a month to month
tenant. As such, you must be given at least 30 days written notice to terminate your tenancy. Then, if you do not leave, the law does not allow the landlord to forcibly evict you without obtaining an eviction
order from a court. What that means is that if termination date comes and you do not move out, the landlord cannot simply change the locks or throw your things out. Rather, under Washington law, what the landlord has to do is to then deliver a 10-Day Notice to quit...which basically says you have 10 days to leave or face eviction. But, if you still have not left, the owner must then file an unlawful detainer petition with the court for an eviction order. Depending upon the court's docket, it can take anywhere from about 15 days to a couple of months to get a hearing. Only when a judge has issued the eviction order can the owner have you evicted. That will buy you a good bit of time. So, if the landlord takes any action to force you out without following the foregoing process, let him know you'll be the one calling the police for an illegal eviction. :)
