Governor Inslee makes further unprecedented Landlord-Tenant Law orders and restrictions!

What are the Governor’s changes to the Residential Landlord-Tenant Law?

The government of the State of Washington and Governor Inslee have repeatedly taken unprecedented legal and economic action to address the COVID-19 pandemic, and those actions have specific impacts on landlords and tenants.

Initially, the Governor placed a temporary moratorium on evictions based on non-payment of rent.  On March 18, Governor Inslee ordered that “residential landlords are prohibited from serving a notice of unlawful detainer for default payment or rent,” and prohibited “issuing a 20-day notice . . . related to such property” as well. That initial order was scheduled to expire on April 17th.

However, on April 16, 2020, Governor Inslee renewed and expanded that moratorium, prohibiting a vast array of actions landlords ordinarily rely to enforce a tenant’s compliance with the terms of a their rental agreements.

Did the Governor re-write RCW 59.18?

Do the Governor’s Actions Violate Separation of Powers?

Legislature may change definition of “Theft”!

The Washington State Legislature is considering a change to the definition of “Theft” as defined in RCW 9A.56.020.  Currently, Theft means

  • To wrongfully obtain or exert unauthorized control over the property or services of another or the value thereof, with intent to deprive him or her of such property or services; or
  • By color or aid of deception to obtain control over the property or services of another or the value thereof, with intent to deprive him or her of such property or services; or
  • To appropriate lost or misdelivered property or services of another, or the value thereof, with intent to deprive him or her of such property or services.
Criminal Defense Attorneys in Olympia and Centralia.

In Washington, a person has to physically leave the store before the intervention can take place.  This has put many loss prevention and security officers at risk attempting to contact suspects outside of the retail location.

Therefore, the Legislature is considering amending the definition of “theft” for purposes of theft-related offenses to include concealing the property of another intending to deprive the other person of its use or benefit.

When House Bill 1159 was considered last year, there were concerns about inclusion of the phrase “permanently deprive,” which could make theft offenses crimes of moral turpitude. That phrase has been removed in the current version of the bill.

Peter Abbarno named the Daily Chronicle Newspaper’s Person of the Year!

Peter Abbarno named Person of the Year! 

On a recent day, United Way of Lewis County Executive Director Debbie Campbell received a surprising gift in the form of a note and $500 left in the mail.

Peter Abbarno, attorney and partner with Althauser Rayan Abbarno, was named the Chronicle Newspaper’s Person of the Year!

“We would like to honor Peter Abbarno for all he does to further education in Lewis County,” read the short letter, written by a local woman who had recently lost her husband.

She didn’t know Abbarno particularly well, but his work in the community had inspired her and her late husband to contribute to a cause he supports.

To Campbell, it’s another piece of tangible, heartwarming evidence of the impacts made by Abbarno, a prolific local volunteer, Centralia city councilor and attorney who has for years dedicated his time, money and expertise to dozens of causes and organizations in both Lewis and Thurston counties.

“Peter has a heart to make our community a better place,” Campbell said. “He believes that improving a community is about solving problems and he not only gives of his time, talent and resources, he supports the good work of others with strategic brainstorming and connecting people with resources. Peter has good will in his heart, and with his energy and perseverance, he has achieved great things for our community.” Indeed, it might be quicker to name the organizations Abbarno has not volunteered his time to than those he has.
