It is unclear what, if anything, you are asking. You apparently already have an attorney and they are the person to talk with - they know your case better than anyone reading a few paragraphs in an on-line forum. If you no longer trust your attorney, fire them and get a new one that you do trust.
We have a landlord that is refusing to resolve a water issue resulting in no water being provided, and is stopping us from bringing in water via a truck. They have turned their pigs loose which have been on the property for 2 years and have been asked repeatedly to take care of them. They are... Read more »
Your posting does not begin to provide enough information to even understand what is going on, let alone analyze the legal positions. Subleasing is usually prohibited in most - but not all - residential leases, at least without the true landlord's written permission. Beyond that, landlords...Read more »
She told me I could move out with no penalty but she wanted to start showing the house while I still live here. I do not agree to that but she says that I did because she thinks I sign the lease. She does not remember that we never signed it. I am very uncomfortable with strangers in my living... Read more »
You do not have to let prospective tenants tour your home - but be sure to tell your landlord no and be able to prove it. If they enter anyway, document it since it likely is worth a month's rent to you. If you have no signed, written lease, you are on a month to month tenancy. You have to...Read more »
Landlord gave us a no cause eviction June of 2020 the day after we paid rent and late fee. When the moratorium was extended she rescinded that notice. A couple weeks ago she mailed us a notice of Rent increase effective Sept 1 but didn't give it to us until end of June, so definitely not 90... Read more »
Your landlord's actions appear to be highly suspect but more exact details are needed to know much. Charging a late fee in June 2020 may or may not have been legal (it became unlawful to charge late fees during Covid but I don't recall the effective date off the top of my head). Any...Read more »
Assuming you are talking about residential landlord-tenant in Oregon, and assuming there was no actual emergency justifying entry, a landlord or their representative has to provide you at least 24 hrs advanced notice of their intent to enter. You are free to deny entry so long as you do not do so...Read more »
If they pay no rent, appear to have moved out, but have not given notice or returned keys? They are retaining possession in anticipation of a no cause (they want the relocation $$$) which (neither notice or funds) has NOT even been issued yet. Home is in Portland. But let's say they move out... Read more »
The first thing to check is your written lease - most leases have a abandonment clause terminating a tenancy after 7 or 14 days of being gone without having provided advanced notice to the landlord. Regardless, if they have obtained a new primary residence, I would argue that is proof positive...Read more »
Generally it is unlikely to matter given that the owner can designate anyone to represent them and be their agent in managing a rental property. And that person can also delegate part or all of the job to someone else, and so on. So even if wife was originally designated as Manager, she can pass...Read more »
My notice of entry from manager says I was served form today at 3pm when it was posted on my door at 9pm last night? Also if my managers husband sexually assaulted me at work 2 years ago can I deny him entry during inspection
A landlord has to provide at least 24 hr notice of his intent to enter - which it sounds as if he has. You should be free to deny entry to any specific person as long as you notify the landlord before or at the time of their arrival.
Your exact facts are not clear to me but if you returned the same key(s) given you, the landlord has no right to charge you for changing the locks. Separately, $400 seems a steep price for changing a single lock unless there is something special about it. If worth it to you, consider reviewing it...Read more »
Certainly outside the city limits of Portland; it is less clear in Portland but my guess is ultimately yes. There is nothing so clear cut as a statute forbidding it and why shouldn't they? They are a private party, renting their own property, and there a number of possible fully legal...Read more »
And It’s been over 2 years and I suffered a personal injury from one of those issues and I have children in the house and then on top of that the landlord gave us an eviction notice then said never mind we can stay then ten days later they gave us another notice what should I do contact a lawyer...

No power, heat, and rotten floors? Sounds like you should have contacted a local landlord-tenant attorney long ago. It does appear you may have claims for reduced rent and possibly for wrongfully issued notice, depending upon the facts. None of this may affect the current termination notice but...Read more »
Maybe but it all depends. First, you will have to prove that use of the product, according to its directions, has materially damaged you. That most likely can require the testimony of a medical doctor (read EXPENSIVE). You will have to prove both that your head has been damaged and whether it is...Read more »
Asking the same question in a slightly different way does not change the answer - yes, they can raise rent so long as the tenant is on a month to month tenancy (or at the end of a fixed lease term) and the tenant has not been there less than a year. The prohibition is on raising rent during a...Read more »
I have lived in my home for 4 years. My new landlords want to raise the rent over 300$, add on "utility" fees, and pet fees. In which I already paid my previous landlords a pet deposit when I moved in. They are saying they never got it from the old landlords. They are also wanting to... Read more »
9.2% applies just to the rent. IF you paid a pet deposit (and can prove it if necessary), the new landlord is responsible for it. If he didn't get it from the seller, that is not your problem. Pet rent is legal in Oregon but it and a deposit etc. can all be avoided if you simply get a...Read more »
It does not sound as if you have a new tenancy, just a new landlord. The statutory prohibition says a landlord may not raise rent during the first year of tenancy. I believe a Judge would say that was up for you years ago and unless you are on a fixed term lease, a landlord is free to raise your...Read more »
I am unaware of any cases on the topic that have been decided by either the Oregon Supreme Court or the Appellate Court. That said, I read the statute to say yes, any new landlord is still subject to the max rent increase - for several reasons. Nothing in the statute speaks to there being any...Read more »
We're in the process of moving out due to our rental selling. Our landlord has already been over to do upgrades 5 times in the last few weeks and has now sent another notice that they need to come over this weekend to paint the fence. They said it can't wait the two more days after... Read more »
I got in touch with the property manager today and asked when should we give our 30 day notice to vacate since we are buying a different home. We got our 90 day notice May 26th with final move out August 29th. Our lease ends July 29th. They came back with that they made a mistake due to the... Read more »
I am not at all clear whether you intend to move out pursuant to your own Notice and plans or if you are moving pursuant to the landlord's Notice on the date they specify. If the landlord's Notice IS invalid, do you intend to remain? If not, what's the problem?
You may want to review your agreement with the storage company before filing a lawsuit. It may well limit their liability and/or advise (require?) you to have insurance on the storage bin contents. It may also matter how/what they promised regarding video surveillance and what happened (did it not...Read more »
