The maximum rent increase in Oregon for 2023 is 14.6% over any 12 month rolling period. However, there are a small number of exceptions to the rent cap such as there being less than 15 years since the building got its first occupancy license or if it is part of a state or federal low income...Read more »
The roommate was told he has to move and now the landlord doesn't want to rent toe just the other roommate but they talk to each other and other people about me and eviction court and conspire stories to make up to try to get the judge to favor them the guy assulted me and the landlord and...

I am not seeing much of a question here so it is difficult to know how to respond. IF your question is can the landlord and now ex-tenant talk about you between themselves, the answer is of course - you have no right to control who someone talks to or what they talk about. If you believe they are...Read more »
I have reported this to my landlord, property manager and leasing staff via email and in person more than 30 times since September 18, 2022, the day my neighbor moved in. But over 4 months later now very little has changed. My property manager kept asking me to present 3rd party confirmation but... Read more »
First, if you are in Multnomah County and the dog either barks for more than 10 minutes straight or intermittently for more than 30 minutes, gather your proof (record it?) and file a complaint with Multnomah County Animal Control. The process can take some pursuit but they do try to enforce the...Read more »
My DV advacate tried to call the landlord for me and texted and left voicemail that they will pay the past due rent if 1600 but want a lease in my name and he evaded phone calls and we went to court the judge ruled for landlord because a third party promised to pay and that doesn't stop...

Asking the same question multiple times doesn't change the answer. The rental assistance protections you likely are thinking of was a COVID emergency program that expired last September and is no longer in effect.
I had a letter from domestic violence help from tied to change they're going to help pay the back pay the rent of $1600 to the landlord was aware of that because I told him several times before court before you even serve me papers that my domestic violence Grant people would help with my...

It is all in the timing. If you did not pay the rent owed in full by the end of the 72 hrs. specified in the notice, your landlord can evict. Period. He is not required to wait for some third party to pay the rent, whenever they get around to it.
I'm a domestic violence victim from the house I moved into with the person the perpetrated that assaults me so the land was supposed to come meet with me and do a lease he never came I had an extra key cuz I got locks change from types of change and landlord never came he told me every day for...

You seem to be missing the recognition that rent has a due date. If not timely paid, the landlord can throw you out. IF the landlord is willing to wait for the possibility of a third party payment, fine. But you can not force him to and if you have not paid, in full, by the deadline in your 144 hr...Read more »
As long as it is truthful. This is precisely the kind of information new potential landlords want and need to know. Why would a new landlord want to rent to someone that just stiffed their last landlord? It is always difficult to rent a new place after being evicted from a previous place.
I am unclear as to your current status. IF you are actually out, you need to go to the first court appearance and tell the Judge. As long as you are out by the time of your appearance, the case should be dismissed and there will be no eviction on your rental record. Just so you know, you have not...Read more »

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...Read more »
I have lived in the same house for 3 years. Both me and my roommate or on the lease which is a 12 month lease ending in April. Since my landlord is not offering a renewal and I have been there for 3 years will she have to pay mandatory relocation assistance? I’m in Portland Oregon Multnomah county
Yes unless the landlord qualifies for an exemption, though most (but not all) leases automatically renew or rollover into month to month tenancies if neither side affirmatively and timely terminates the lease.
Before applying, I read their qualifications required to be accepted. It mentions rental history and making 2.5x rent, both of which I qualify for. However, they are requesting a second deposit or cosigner due to being at my current job for 4 months. Can they do that?
IF you meet all the posted requirements, the landlord cannot turn you down now for not meeting his changed requirements. He can, however, after the first year, increase the security deposit amount if he wishes. If he does, he have to give you 3 months to pay the increased amount.
Under the doctrine of respondeat superior your landlord is responsible for the actions of his employees and/or agents in the course and scope of their employment and/or agency. If you need an attorney to assist you, there is an attorney fee provision under ORS 90.255 if a lawsuit is filed and you...Read more »
The faucet was leaking for more than two years cause extensive mold under the cabinets. They took the cabinets out, disposing the mold, put plastic up in the dining room and kitchen. It’s been A week as of tomorrow, they say they might need another week to do the repairs
Current lease term is up on 12/31, but we will not be renewing. We have until 12/15 to either renew or go month to month. If we find another place and vacate before the end of our term on 12/31, are we still obligated to pay for 30 days' notice?
Assuming you are in Oregon, it likely depends upon exactly what your lease says about renewal and/or termination. Fixed term leases vary - some automatically roll over into a month to month unless either party provides notice ahead of time that they do not wish to renew; some self renew for...Read more »
My husband and I have been living in our current rental for 3 years. New management took over and they are telling us that because my husband and I do not BOTH make 3 times the rent that we no longer qualify to live there. I support my husband while he's in grad school and this seems like... Read more »
I already answered your question over on Avvo.com but would add that I assume you are on a month to month tenancy (or they couldn't even try to kick you out until the end of the lease without alleging and proving you violated the lease terms somehow). You also don't say what they have...Read more »
IF the acts complained of were committed on or in the immediate vicinity of the rental premises, then likely yes with a 24 hour written notice. Note that just because the police arrest someone, they have not yet been proven guilty so you might be challenged in an eviction procedure to prove it.
I live in a house and rent a room. I did not sign a lease prior to moving in a year ago. I am about to move and I'm wondering if I need to give 30 days notice? Or if I can leave whenever because I didn't sign a lease. I live in Portland Oregon
A written lease is not required and makes no difference in this matter. You do not have to give any notice - but you will owe an additional 30 days rent. If you give just 15 days written notice (it must be in writing to be legally valid) before moving out, you would then owe an additional 15 days...Read more »

They can only give you a 90 day notice if you are on a month to month tenancy, not if you are on a fixed term lease. If the landlord owns more than 4 rental units in Oregon, they should have paid you at least a month's rent as relocation assistance. If not, arguably the notice is invalid....Read more »
