Q: What are the Oregon eviction laws currently due to covid-19? Some tenants not paying rent and want late fees waived too
Do you guys also give equine boarding facility advice?
A: To qualify for deferral of paying residential rent, the tenant is supposed to have applied and provided proof to the landlord before the 1st of the month that their ability to pay rent is currently compromised due to covid-19. Good luck in getting a Judge to enforce that and it won't really matter until the courts are willing to address such matters - postponed by the Governor until at least after June 29, 2020. The Governor's Order does indeed permanently waive charging any late fees on rent during the pandemic. Whether she has the legal authority to do that remains to be seen but that is the situation currently.
The rent deferral and/or late fee waiver does not, however, apply to equine boarding though the court closures may affect your ability to do much about it at the moment.
