AGO 1956 NO. 320 >

RCW 35.21.290 does not apply where an owner gives the superintendent of the public utility a notice and at the time there are no delinquent charges. If there is a delinquency and the statute is complied with by the owner, the single compliance by the owner would not apply to all subsequent tenancies.
