A fax machine is not a requirement. Read the statute; it says *IF* you have a fax machine you have to provide the number to the tenant in the summons so they can respond that way.
Hope this helps. Elizabeth Powell
Using Avvo does not form an attorney client relationship.
Ms. Powell is right, you do not need a fax machine - but if you have one, list it.
To find the appropriate grounds for unlawful detainer or eviction action review RCW 59.12.030.
