Medford, OR asked in Landlord - Tenant for Oregon

Q: Is there any way in Oregon to stay a eviction judgement?

My landlord gave a for cause notice. There were 5 items that needed to be cured by a specific date. 3 of the 5 items were cured before the notice was even sent therefore well before the cure date.

Long story short we went to trail. The judge dismissed the 2 reasons that weren't cured. He did decide for the landlord on the other 3 items therefore we are being evicted. The problem is that the 3 items he upheld were already cured before the notice even went out. Both sides have acknowledged the 3 items were cured before the cure date so there is no dispute about that.

The trial was 2.5 hours and about 90% was discussing the 2 items that had not been cured in time. I'm thinking he forgot that the 3 things were cured well before the date because we spent the whole time discussing the other 2 things.

I'm planning to appeal and/or file a ORCP motion. Is there any way to stay the eviction order until the motion or appeal is heard? Is there any way to stay it at this point?

A: Yes, the eviction order may be stayed pending the outcome of an appeal - once an appeal is filed. But if the eviction is enforced before the notice of appeal is filed, you are likely going to be out while the appeal proceeds.
