Staying Current with Landlord-Tenant Laws and Ordinances


Nothing is more critical to Safe Harbor than ensuring our clients stay safe regarding new Landlord-Tenant Laws. This protects the owners, the residents, as well as profitability.

The State of Washington and the City of Tacoma are interesting and fast-moving places to conduct business. This reality is doubly true in the property management business. Staying on top of changes to requirements regarding their Landlord-Tenant relationships is complicated and confusing. The pandemic has made things even more complex as far as evictions, lease agreements, and if you can ask a resident to move.

We help our owners stay ahead of the legal aspect of their business by providing monthly or even weekly updates via our email newsletter, “The Safe Harbor News.” Each article summarizes the main points and gives you links to the City of Tacoma’s website for more information.

While we are not legal advisors, and we can’t be a sole source of this type of information, we are here to keep your business and practices pointed toward 100% compliance. You will come to rely on our contextualizing the legal concepts that can seem to be overwhelming. We have decades of experience concerning the practical side of legal issues upon which to draw. At Safe Harbor, we encourage having structures and protocols to ensure that your ‘due diligence’ is embedded into every step of your processes.

In our decades of property management, we have come to appreciate that a little extra step today will save massive headaches as well as legal fees tomorrow. But most importantly, we are here to ensure that your dealings with your residents are fair and ethical regardless of whether legal issues come into the discussion.

The bottom line is that we want to treat our partners and residents how we would want to be treated.

Do you have a legal question or need a legal resource? We want to help you. Give us a call or send us an email, and we will get back to you promptly!
