Lightbulb Home Daycare in A Rental - Washington State

Hi everybody,

I'm living in California right now, but my husband and I are thinking of moving to Seattle Area. My plan is to open a home based daycare. I know the landlord/ tenant legislation in California, but I don't know anything about the legislation in Washingtion State.

I would really appreciate if somebody could help me and shed light on what Washington law says about daycares in rentals.

PS : I will be in Seattle next week, I will be pleased to meet up and to discuss about home daycare business in Seattle area!

I used to work in Washington. Unlike California, there are no laws that say landlords can't forbid home based childcare. Your best bet is to find one who doesn't mind. In my experience, private landlords are more likely to work with you than management companies. Unless you buy a home, your ability to open a home based childcare will be at the discretion of the home owner once you move.

Hi Jessy,
My husband and I are in the same situation that you mentioned in your post (we are living in California and planning to move back to Seattle where I want to open a daycare). I'm curious if you did it and if you have any insight or advice. Where you able to find a landlord willing to let you operate a daycare out of the rental?
Many thanks for your thoughts!
