Is a Contract to Lease Binding in Washington?

This question is about Washington Residential Lease Agreement

Yes, a contract to lease is legally binding in Washington. To be valid, a contract to lease may have to be written, especially for a fixed term over one year. Oral leases may be valid in some cases (especially when both parties later behave as though there’s an enforceable oral lease), but often have strict limitations on enforceability for things like length of the lease term.
