Do Lease Agreements Need to Be Notarized in Washington?

This question is about Washington Residential Lease Agreement

Lease agreements only need to be notarized in Washington if they are for a term of more than one (1) year. Otherwise, a notary helps establish the identity of the people signing the lease, if there’s a claim of fraud, but a notary isn’t necessary for a lease of one year or less to be valid.
