Washington State: The Landis Bomb.

THE LANDIS BOMB Part 1 of 2 In October of 2012 Washington State landlords were, in this attorney’s humble opinion, kicked in the teeth by the Division 1 Washington Court of Appeals. This very unwelcome dental work came in the form of the Landis case. For those interested, that is Landis & Landis Construction, LLC, an Oregon limited liability company vs Nicola Nation d/b/a Nation Management, 286 P.3d 979 (Wash.App Div. 1 2012). While this case is new enough that its impact has not yet been fleshed out in subsequent courts, it seems likely that this case will accomplish four unfortunate things from the landlord perspective and one from the tenants view. First, this case seems likely to mean that a tenant can both unilaterally cancel a rental contract without any notice to the landlord based on habitability claims.

Dupre & Scott Video Report: Honey, I Shrunk The Apartment

HONEY, I SHRUNK THE APARTMENT

Apartments are getting smaller again. The average unit size increased
dramatically in the 1970s, 80s, and 90s. But developers are modifying design
ideas from the 1920s and 1950s to make smaller apartments work once again.
Costs to consumers as well as developers may be driving this trend. But
other factors are at work right now to make this trend work better than it
ever did.
