Does Boyfriend need to evict me legally as any other landlord would?

Recommended Posts

If my boyfriend moves me into his apartment and 2 weeks later wants to throw me out on the street, is that legal? We have a verbal agreement, he never told his property manager I moved in. 

Also I receive mail there. Does that hold any merit? I moved 350 miles to be with him. I don't have the means to move at the moment. He wants me out asap!

We live in Washington State.

Washington landlord tenant statute.

 

Quote

RCW59.18-030 (27) A "tenant" is any person who is entitled to occupy a dwelling unit primarily for living or dwelling purposes under a rental agreement.

 

You're a tenant.
 

Quote

 


RCW59.18.200 (1)(a) When premises are rented for an indefinite time, with monthly or other periodic rent reserved, such tenancy shall be construed to be a tenancy from month to month, or from period to period on which rent is payable, and shall be terminated by written notice of twenty days or more, preceding the end of any of the months or periods of tenancy, given by either party to the other.

 

 

That's you. He has to give you written notice of at least 20 days prior to the end of the rental period.

That was stupid.

Will you have the means in 20 days?

 

Life lesson from the school of hard knocks: Don't move in with boyfriends.

Subject to how literal your question is, the answer is most likely yes.

The terms of which are what?

I have no idea what this question might mean.
