A: It depends on the violation of the lease agreement. Under Oregon Law certain violations allow the tenant 14 days to cure the violation and if the violation is not cured by the deadline stated within the Notice to Cure, the tenant's tenancy will be terminated within 30 days of the notice being served. However, if the tenant has failed to pay rent generally the tenant has 72 hours or has 144 hours from the date of the notice being served to cure the violation by paying the amount owed in full to the landlord and if the tenant does pay their rent by the deadline the tenant's tenancy will be terminated within 30 days of the notice being served. If you have received a notice to cure or notice for failure to pay rent and you unsure of what your next steps are you should cure the violations or pay the amount due by the deadlines stated in the notice. You can also reach out to a local landlord tenant attorney as well. If you are a landlord, you should contact a local landlord tenant attorney to assist you in drafting, serving, and the follow through of that notice.

Good luck.
