The Washington 14-day notice to quit is a notice served on a tenant after a default in rent payment providing them with fourteen (14) days to pay the past-due rent or vacate the premises. A landlord is required to stop an eviction process if the tenant pays in full before the expiration of the notice term. In Washington, the non-payment of utilities can be included as non-payment of rent and a landlord is permitted to evict for either infraction. It should be noted that there are no statutes that outline a grace period for tenants, and the landlord in any situation is within their rights to serve the tenant a notice to quit as soon as the due date has passed (as defined within the rental agreement).
