My question involves landlord-tenant law in the State of: Washington.
Recently (April. 20) I entered into an agreement with a tenant to rent my condo. She was obtaining assistance from the State Welfare system in efforts to assist her in the move in costs, the State Welfare verified and authorized payment by way of a check made out to me in the amount of 1/2 of all fees, leaving my tenant with a balance of the other half.
Yesterday full payment was made by the tenant for the other half, she has had the keys to the condo since Apr. 20 and has moved some of her property in the home even though she herself has not resided in the home as of yet. The ulilities are now in her name all of which was done on the day she paid the balance, I advised her that there were a couple of items needing repair in the condo( light fixture) and that my husband would be there this weekend to complete that. Well I do not know if the young lady now suffers from buyers remorse, but she asked for a refund of all monies paid to date. Do we have any rights in this situation? Anyone please!!!!! help.
