Asked on Oct 9, 2023

Are there automatic renewals in rental agreements?

I am looking to rent a property and have read the rental agreement, however, I am unsure if there are any automatic renewals in the agreement. I have heard that sometimes rental agreements are set up to automatically renew after a certain period of time, but I am not sure if this is the case with my agreement. I am looking for clarity on whether or not the agreement I am signing includes any automatic renewals.

Residential month to month rental agreements and/or residential lease agreements often include terms regarding whether or not an agreement automatically renews. However, the Washington State Residential Landlord Tenant Law and/or ordinances in certain WA cities sometimes may provide the answer to your question. https://apps.leg.wa.gov/rcw/default.aspx?cite=59.18
