In Washington State, it is legal for a landlord to give a month-to-month tenant an eviction notice without providing a legitimate reason. This is known as a “no-cause” eviction. "No-cause" evictions are unjust and should be illegal because they deprive tenants of legal protections and sometimes cover up landlord discrimination.

Note: A 20-day no-cause eviction is different from other types of evictions. If your eviction was for not paying rent or for breaking the rules of a lease, you may have received a different notice instead of a no-cause notice.
