Q: IF RENT IS A MONTH TO MONTH TENANCY, IS LANDLORD REQUIRED TO NOTIFY TENANT 90 DAYS PRIOR TO EFFECTIVE DATE OF INCREASE?
MULTNOMAH COUNTY, OREGON--OCTOBER 14, 2021
A: A landlord may not raise rent during the first 12 months of occupancy. Thereafter they can raise rent in a month to month tenancy with at least 90 days prior written notice that contains all the legally required information; that is lawfully served upon the tenant; and which does not exceed the applicable statutory rent cap. Depending upon where the rental is located and the percentage amount of the rent increase, there may be additional disclosure and notice requirements that the landlord must comply with or face potential damages claims.
