Portland, OR asked in Landlord - Tenant for Oregon

Q: If my landlord gives me 90 days notice to vacate, am I still required to give them 30 days notice when I find a place?

More details:

- I’m in Portland, Or

- tenancy has been longer than 1 year

- notice to vacate is for landlord cause (renovations), they will not be attempting to fill the vacancy.

If I have to leave within 90 days, do I have to also give 30 days notice if I find a new place and want to move before the 90 days are up?

A: While your landlord can waive it, yes, you would owe at least 30 days prior written notice if you move out before day 90. I have not seen it litigated but arguably you would also lose your right to any relocation assistance since your leaving would then become "voluntary" instead of having the landlord terminate your tenancy. I suspect a Judge would still give you the funds but it is a risk.
