If two tenants have same address, different leases, and one is evicted, does that include the other tenant? 1 Answers as of April 17, 2017

Owner designed a house into two separate apartments. Tenants share one address one mailbox. One tenant gets a month to month at $550 a month and one gets a lease for $1000 a month. At end of the lease, she tells him she won't renew lease then evicts him on papers. It gives tenant name and other occupants. Does that include tenant with month to month or does owner have to give notice and evict separately?

If the other tenant was given a notice but you were not, then any attempts by your landlord to evict you should be ineffective. The Washington Residential Landlord Tenant Act is specific on service of notices to terminate a tenancy, and all tenants must be given a notice. For example, a landlord must give a copy to a husband and wife, not just one. In your case, you each have distinct rental agreements as well, so that would also require that you receive your own notice if there was any attempt to evict you as well. You can also always call you landlord to confirm that you are not being asked to vacate.
