If a tenant has followed protocol and given a written 30 day notice to vacate a month to month lease contract can they revoke that notice or do they legally have to vacate unless the landlord allows them to stay?
If either side - tenant or landlord - issues a notice of termination, they have no legal right to rescind the notice without the permission of the opposing party. So no, if a tenant gives a written 30 day termination notice, the landlord may rely upon it and enforce it if the tenant fails to leave...Read more »
An Oregon attorney could advise best, but your post remains open for three weeks. It's difficult to speculate what could have caused the insurance company's change in position without knowing additional details. Whatever the reason, something raised the suspicion of the claims examiner....Read more »
Depends upon the exact details. Perhaps under ORS 90.403 you could evict her as an unauthorized possessor. If your exact facts don't allow that, you may have to file to eject her instead of evicting her. Regardless, neither are do-it-yourself sort of projects and can prove to be very...Read more »

If all 3 of you are on the same lease, any of you can issue the required 30 day termination of tenancy notice. Doing so will legally terminate the lease for all 3, though #3 can always talk with the landlord to see if they can enter into a new rental agreement, with or without new, replacement...Read more »
I just started as a property manager at my company in August of 2020. My predecessor was bad at sending out renewals on time to fixed term tenants. I have a tenant that's lease expired 10/31/20 and they asked me about it on 10/21/20. Seeing that a renewal was not sent I generated one and sent... Read more »
Sure, you can enter into a new lease anytime that both sides/parties agree. That said, no, you cannot lawfully raise rent without at least 90 days advanced written notice. There is no reason, however, the new lease cannot provide for the old rent until 90 days have passed and then have the rent...Read more »
I received an email from my landlord saying I had 14 days to cure, and that on day 14 they would be doing an inspection. Is this legal? Or do they have to give it to me in person? They cited Covid as the reason for email instead of in person.
Covid does not change a landlord's obligations - serving solely by email (or text for that matter) is not a lawful way to serve a 30 day for cause termination notice and any attempt to enforce the Notice is likely to fail in court. As to whether it also is a valid method of notifying you of...Read more »
An Oregon attorney could answer best, but your post remains open for three weeks.

Since you were hit by a cop in the state of Oregon, tort claim notice will need to be received by the employer and/or city/county/state attorney of the cop who hit you within 180 days. The hearing for the ticket will be important, as the judge will be determining weather or not you were at fault...Read more »
If you have a complaint against an Oregon attorney you could contact the Oregon State Bar. Yes, probates can be reopened if necessary. You might want to pay a probate attorney for an hour of time to review the facts in your case to determine what next steps you should take.

An Oregon attorney could advise best, but you await a response for three weeks. Do you mean an EVICTION notice? Read it more carefully. If that's the case, repost this under Landlord-Tenant law and hopefully an experienced L-T attorney could offer meaningful guidance. Good luck
Regarding the question as to whether false documentation on a medical record is something to pursue, the short answer is yes. You should always point out something inaccurate in your medical records if you notice it. It's just good practice and could protect you from harm, such as if the...Read more »
Because a DUI is a crime and not a violation, the local prosecutor (not the officer) actually files the charge with the court. The process involves the police turning their citation, reports, and other case info over to the prosecutor’s office to make their charging decision.

Tread VERY carefully or you may well end up owing the tenant damages. A 72 hour notice is for failure to pay rent and currently is unlawful to issue - even technically criminal to do so. You may NOT shut off utilities or take any other action to "encourage" a tenant to move and mold...Read more »
I'm very sorry for your losses. I recommend you hire a probate attorney. If the house is in Oregon it's likely there needs to be a probate on at least your mom's estate. It's possible for your brother to sign a Disclaimer. If he has no children, that should give his share of...Read more »

I hope that your daughter is doing well. Getting dental care at a young age is important and you want her to have a positive experience. This is a tough issue, because a child (as a patient) cannot legally consent to treatment. You, as the parent, are in control of what is consented to and what is...Read more »
The landlord has informed us that the water supply to the washing machine in the kitchen is being disconnected. A reason is not being given. The landlord pays for water. Is this legal?

A landlord does not need to provide appliances at all to a tenant. But if they elect to do so, then they are obligated to maintain, fix, repair or otherwise continue to provide the same or better level of service to the tenant throughout the tenancy. So your landlord is free to remove the washing...Read more »
