Q: I have a lease but there is a clause that says the landlord can raise the rent providing such notice required by the act
Is this legal? I live in Oregon
A: If the lease is a term lease, the landlord cannot raise the rent during the term of the lease from the written agreement, but could raise the rent at the end of the term if the lease becomes month-to-month or needs to be renewed. You don't mention whether the landlord is trying to raise the rent now, but if they are you should probably consult with your own attorney before paying anything less than what has been demanded. Good luck.
