NOTICE RESPONSE

Dear Isaac Smith,
This is in response to your Ten (10) Day Notice to Comply or Vacate dated April 28, 2022. The
Notice intimated that I have outstanding rental payments due and I had breached some Rental
agreement provisions, therefore suggesting a reasonable repayment plan and notice to vacate the
premises.
It is my position that I have no rent due, as Thomas P. Keefe, the new owner of the premises, and
I entered into a Mutual Agreement to Terminate Tenancy dated March 1, 2022. The Mutual
Agreement was sent via email. (Find it attached below).
The Mutual Agreement stated that Mr. Keefe had waived outstanding rent owed under the Lease
Agreement and all future rent that may be owed under the Lease Agreement and that the Lease
term shall end on June 30, 2022. The Mutual Agreement to Terminate Tenancy further stated
that all Tenants were allowed to vacate the Premises by or before midnight on June 30, 2022.
The consequence for failure to terminate the Lease after the stated date would be: the Tenant will
be required to pay Mr. Keefe the full monthly rental amount for each month of waived rent, at a
monthly rental amount of $ 1600, or Mr. Keefe would initiate legal proceedings to have the
Tenants removed from the Premises.
Subject to the terms of the Mutual Agreement to Terminate Tenancy, Mr. Keefe’s Notice to
vacate the premises within 10 days is unfair, unreasonable, and in contravention to the Mutual
Agreement. The Tenants were allowed to stay on the premises until June 30, 2022, and their rent
was waived. Therefore, we should be allowed to stay at the Premises until June 30, 2022.
With regard to the breach of the provisions of the Lease Agreement, I undertake hereby to clean
and properly maintain the leased Premises for the remaining term of the Agreement, remove all

unauthorized occupants from the Premises, and remove all unauthorized pets from the Premises.
I will provide the Landlord a written confirmation that I have not utilized the Premises for
commercial purposes and do the necessary repairs.
Please consider the Mutual Tenancy Agreement entered into by the owner of the premises and
the Tenant and provide good and prompt communication as to the way forward while
considering my undertakings.

Yours Sincerely,
Sukiela Wright.

MUTUAL AGREEMENT TO TERMINATE TENANCY

This Mutual Agreement to Terminate Tenancy (“Agreement”), is made and entered into

defined below (“Tenants”).

landlord, required under RCW § 59.18.200(1)(a). To the extent applicable, the parties hereto

    amount for each month of waived rent, at a monthly rental amount of $1,600 as set forth in the

    Agreement, Owner may initiate legal proceedings to have the Tenants removed from the

  3. Conflict with Lease Agreement. In the event that there is a conflict between the
    provisions set forth in the Lease Agreement that may exist and the provisions of this Agreement,
    the provisions of this Agreement shall prevail.
  4. Miscellaneous.

(a) All individual provisions, paragraphs, and sections in this Agreement shall
be severable and if any one or more of such provisions, paragraphs, or
