Stevens-Ness/Washington Legal Blanks Instructions, in part:
“In the State of Washington, unlawful detainer (“eviction”) is a procedure whereby a landlord or real property owner (“landlord”) may have a renter (“tenant”) removed from the property for non-payment of rent, damage to the property, staying over (“holdover”) on the property past the date when the tenant was to leave, or other valid reasons. The actual eviction takes place after you have obtained a court order directing the issuance of a Writ of Restitution. Unless the tenant leave voluntarily you must resort to the legal process and should not attempt to use force or remove furnishings. If you do so, you may be liable for assault or for damages to the tenant’s property. It is wiser to use the law that was designed to protect and help you, rather than to take matters into your own hands.”
