The Rules of Evidence limits the types of information/evidence that can be brought out at trial. Depending on what type of evidence you are attempting to use, there may also be case law that limits it’s admission.
We got a 90 day notice to leave because they sold the property . But no papers were added showing proof of it being sold ...I lease ended in march ..they never renewed it but we have till this day payed rent every month...what should we do...there is nothing open for rent here
Much depends upon the exact details - what the 90 day notice said; what, if any, other papers were served; what, if anything, was said about relocation assistance; etc. You are correct that the seller/landlord is obligated to show you a copy of the offer that he accepted, along with a declaration...Read more »
It all depends upon what grounds the landlord is asserting to terminate your tenancy. They cannot terminate it because you have an emotional support animal ("ESA") that has been properly "prescribed". They can, however, require you to remove any specific, particular emotional...Read more »
Of course - any/all of the Covid moratorium rental restrictions apply to landlords either terminating a tenant's tenancy due to failure to pay rent or without cause. Neither apply to early termination fees - these are imposed only when a tenant elects to terminate their lease early. If they...Read more »

A landlord has the right to sell the rental dwelling if they wish but they still have to provide at least 24 hours advance notice of their intent to enter to show the dwelling. You do not have to allow any specific showing but are not free to ban all showings. You can require that those that...Read more »

Any cap on raising rent in a commercial lease depends upon the terms of the rental agreement. Without specified limits, a landlord is free to raise the rent any amount they wish - for an existing or new tenant. It is why most commercial renters insist on multi-year leases so they can plan and...Read more »
No, if none of your mother's assets are in her name alone then no probate is needed. I do recommend you consult with an experienced attorney to make sure you understand your duties as Successor Trustee. Often this is just a one-time consultation but can be very important to ensure that you...Read more »

Yes, there are special legislative restrictions on terminating tenancies at least until July 1st. Even thereafter, you can only terminate a tenancy either for cause or without cause - and if without cause, it must still be for a permitted reason. The financial penalties to a landlord who makes...Read more »
My apartment manager says with my 30 days notice, I have to pay in full before I move out to break my lease. My name on the waiting list have been for a year and a half, I’m a single mom. I asked if I could make payments because I don’t have the money to pay all that in full, and pay my new... Read more »
Your manager is correct about you being obligated to move out once you give written notice - he does not have to let you change your mind about either the date or if you are going to leave. He is wrong however about you having to pay any penalty before being able to leave. Make no mistake - you...Read more »
Until I has another place. 3 weeks later the barn and my trailer burned it was a complete loss. He didn't want to fix the electrical problem. So I had to start using a generator for power. That's what started the fire. So they say. He sexually harrased me the whole time I lived on his... Read more »
I am not clear what you are asking. If the property burned, the landlord's insurance (if he does have any) is not likely to cover your property losses - that is what tenant insurance is for. If you had tenant insurance, you should have filed a claim. Same as to your motorcycle. If you do...Read more »
She emotionally blackmailed me into not submitting any evidence at the trial, so she was found innocent. Now she is using the restraining order and the threat of arrest as blackmail to take full custody of our children despite me offering several reasonable alternatives involving joint custody. Can...

It is not clear exactly where things currently stand. It sounds as if she assaulted you, was charged, went to a trial in which you failed to testify to the facts and she was found not guilty. She also obtained a restraining order against you prohibiting you from having contact with her or your...Read more »
When you say they were evicted, do you mean they were told to leave and did? Or was an eviction lawsuit filed and they lost? Or is a lawsuit still going on? If they voluntarily left, or if they went to trial and lost, it likely is too late to do much. Otherwise they should immediately review...Read more »
I have a question - I put in a proper 2-week notice on May 17th with May 31st being my last day of the 2 week notice. I understand I forfeited all but 16 hours of my vacation according to HR and company’s policy around 2 week notices. The 31st is a holiday and our HR Generalist moved my Exit... Read more »
Holiday pay is not a legally controlled item, it is only a company policy, so you would have to look at your company's policies. That said, while you may not have control over holidays, you did have control as to when to put in your notice, and Memorial Day has been scheduled on that date for...Read more »
Per ORS 90.295-302, I cannot find anything that outlines this fee as allowable. I moved in to the home in 2011 and moved out last month. My lease outlined a non refundable move in fee that was paid upon move in. This was obviously not refunded to me last month when I moved out. Is this fee allowed?
One would need to check what law was in effect in 2011 to see if such a fee was lawful then. Even if it was not, there is a one year statute of limitations on landlord-tenant matters BUT depending upon the exact wording in the lease, you may be entitled to treat it like a deposit instead, which...Read more »
I am having a home placed and issues came up with permits and my move date needed to get pushed back a couple weeks and the manager said “no I can’t make an acception I have no wiggle room your apartment is already rented” I have no where to go with my kids
A landlord can hold you to whatever date you have submitted as your move out date - and, as you note, can rely upon it for re-renting purposes. That said, if you fail to vacate on or before the date specified, the only thing the landlord can do (besides stew, fume, rant, etc.) is file to evict you...Read more »
Last year I fractured my scapula in a non work related injury. I was on short term disability and pressured to come back without a Dr's clearance due to staff shortages. Due to lack of employees light duty is not possible and now almost a year later my shoulder still throbs and I can't... Read more »
An Oregon attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for a week. If there were attorneys involved in either the original injury claim or STD claim, they might be starting points as your first option in seeking direction. If you do not have attorneys associated with those aspects of...Read more »
