We signed a lease on 01/11/11 for a rental home. The language in the lease is as follows: The initial term of this agreement shall begin on November l, 2011and end on November 30, 2012. After the initial term ends, this Agreement will continue for a successive term of one month."
Since this lease term is over 12 month long, and was not notarized as required under RCW 59.18.210 for a lease over 12 month, we are wondering if the lease is a)completely void b) becomes a month to month agreement or c) is converted to a 12 month lease.
I cannot find the answer anywhere in the RCW's. We have to break the lease and wanting to know our legal rights in case the landlord is unwilling to work with us.
