All eviction cases are heard in Superior Court. That means a King County eviction–if it goes to a hearing–will be heard in either Kent or in Seattle, depending on the location of the rental property. District courts and municipal court do not hear evictions.
Seattle residential evictions require knowledge not only of Washington state landlord-tenant laws, but a familiarity with the Seattle just cause eviction ordinance and other Seattle landlord-tenant laws. If you are a Seattle landlord, it may be wise to consult with an eviction attorney familiar with Seattle eviction laws.
