162-38-110. Inquiries to disabled applicants

Unfair practice. It is an unfair practice under RCW 49.60.222(1)(g) for a landlord to inquire into matters personal to a disabled applicant beyond what is necessary and appropriate to the landlord-tenant relationship. For example, the landlord may inquire as to how many persons will occupy the unit, but ordinarily will have no other reason to know whether an aide assists a person with a disability, and when.
