Wrong Summons

In recent years the mandatory summons for residential evictions in Washington has been amended twice.  Many landlords and attorneys are still using older, out-of-date form.

Use of the correct eviction summons is necessary to convey jurisdiction on the court.  Use of the wrong form may lead to dismissal of the eviction action.[1]
