Ultimately it would be up to a Judge. That said, you have no right to deny entry to a landlord or their agent on a blanket basis. You do have a right to require all those who enter to wear a mask and be gloved, and to maintain at least 6' social distancing. With those restrictions in place,...Read more »
I've lived in my rental for over a year and half and we pay our rent every month on time. This month we received a no cause 90 day move out notice by email. They said in the email they want to put the house up for sale a month before our lease is over. They also want us to have our house in... Read more »
You cannot ban the landlord from ever entering your rental. You can deny any specific entry so long as you do not do so unreasonably. You can require basic PPP be worn by all visitors - masks, gloves, at least 6' away. The landlord cannot require you to keep your rental in "show"...Read more »
More information is needed to analyze your situation. Was your medical leave COVID-related? Does your employer have less than 500 employees? Did the forced resignation occur prior to December 31, 2020? If the answer to these questions is yes, then you may be entitled to protection under the...Read more »
This can be viewed as visa abuse, where you can return. An abused B2 visa may result in review on renewal. Remaining in excess of six months may result in delay at a future primary inspection at an airport, even exclusion from the U.S.
A future admission may be denied based upon the...Read more »
What can I do to keep from losing my cash buyer? She has been waiting six months to move in. The renter first said she could not find a house to rent. She keeps coming up with excuses why she can't move. She has sited the Covid 19 saying she does'nt have to move now. At first she refused... Read more »
It is not a question of the tenant's convenience, it is a question of whether you have fully complied with the termination of tenancy requirements - written notice containing the required information, lawfully served. If so, you simply file in court to evict. If not, you start over....Read more »
She got a 72 hour notice Dec 10,2020. She spoke to her landlord and he agreed to give her until Feb.1, 2020. She got that in writing. Yesterday Dec 21,2020 the sherriff office evicted her. The paperwork said she had to contact the landlord to get her possessions. However the deputies would not... Read more »
Most, if not all, 72 hr notices are banned during Covid and the very issuance likely is unlawful. Further, it is unlikely that any court should have granted the relief sought, though your niece was obligated to show up in court. Doing so likely would have avoided the whole issue. Your niece...Read more »
With the moratorium, I don't know if I can choose not to renew their lease at the end of it. The plan for this property was to rent it for two years, and then sell it. This is the end of the second year, and I'd like to sell the property, before the capital gains taxes become applicable.
One of the subtle changes that has been made over the pandemic is exactly what provisions of Oregon Landlord-Tenant law the moratorium applies to. Currently, you are allowed to sell your rental property so long as you comply with all the requirements of ORS 90.427 (5)(d). IF your rental dwelling...Read more »
She sent us a certified letter, and we are trying to figure out a place to go. But it hasn't happened yet. What happens when she shows up on the day we are supposed to be out wanting us out. And our 5 kids
Whether that is lawful depends upon the reason given in the no cause notice. They can only be given for permitted reasons and only 2 of those reasons are allowed during the pandemic. Plus if she only sent the notice by certified mail, it is unenforceable. Additionally, if she has issued the...Read more »
I am very sorry this happened to you. Especially this time of the year, with COVID-19 impacting much of our lives. I am going to assume that you were not at-fault in this accident. First the health of you and your child are the most important thing. Fortunately, a well-protected baby can do well in...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 »
I was coming up he was coming down the blind curve. Cliff on my side. One lane road. I swerved to avoid hitting him and he never even hit the brakes. My insurance lapses by a few weeks due to covid related financial issues. I have court coming up to contest the traffic ticket they gave me which was... Read more »
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 »

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 »
A landlord has no obligation to provide any appliances. However, if they do provide any, it is their duty to maintain and repair those appliances since they were part of what you're paying rent for. If he refuses to replace them, you likely have claims against him. If your dwelling is within...Read more »
It likely is not the seller "dictating" that but rather Oregon law, particularly during Covid times. While the specifics of Oregon's eviction moratorium specifying what can and cannot be done to terminate tenancies during the Covid-19 pandemic have changed enough to currently allow...Read more »
I have physical custody and he has her every other weekend and a couple weeks in the summer. He told me he will not allow me to move. Financially this is best for me and educationally right now is best for her.
Subject to the court's availability during COVID 19, a hearing in most relocation cases can usually be heard within 3-5 months of when Father files his objection to the move. Often, the objection is accompanied by a motion to change custody and/or parenting time. The process usually begins...Read more »
ORS Statutes are contradictory. 90.392 Termination of tenancy for cause; tenant right to cure violation. “…..after delivery of written notice a landlord may terminate the rental agreement for cause and take possession as provided in ORS 105.105 to 105.168, unless the tenant cures the violation...

It may seem a bit confusing but it is not in reality. When a landlord issues a 30 Day For Cause Notice, it must be in a writing (NOT email or text) containing all the required information; be lawfully served; a provide the tenant at least 14 days to "cure" the violation(s) OR at least 30...Read more »

These are two totally separate issues. Yes, a landlord an sell the rental dwelling at any time but the buyer takes it with the tenants already there. The main difference is just who the tenant pays the rent to. Forcing you out because of the sale is potentially different. IF the buyer intends...Read more »
A few months ago my landlord gave me a 90 day notice via email (despite moratorium against no-cause evictions) because they wanted to put house on market. I then entered a contract to purchase the house, and only they signed. It turns-out another person is on the title. I have had some problems... Read more »
No one can tell you the sale status without reviewing your escrow agreement and/or sales agreement. It would seem likely, however, that you may have breach of contract claims if the seller is unable to provide you with a clean Title to the property. You may wish to review everything with a local...Read more »
You may wish to review everything with a local landlord-tenant attorney since it appears you likely have claims against your landlord for damages.
