Effective October 1, 2022, and as previously allowed under Oregon Landlord/Tenant Law, a Landlord will be able to resume use of a 72-hour notice or 144-hour notice when issuing a termination notice for nonpayment of rent. The extended renter protections that required a landlord to provide a tenant with at least a 10-day notice will expire on September 30, 2022.

If you are a Tenant in need of rent assistance, please contact 211 by visiting their website at 211info.org or dialing 2-1-1. Limited emergency rental assistance may still be available.

Expiring “Safe Harbor” Protections: For Tenants who already applied for emergency rental assistance and provided their Landlord with documentation of their pending application (on or before June 30,2022), has protections from evictions for nonpayment of rent while the Tenant’s application for emergency rent assistance is pending or up until Sept. 30, 2022. Tenants are encouraged to contact their rent assistance providers if their application is still pending as extended “safe harbor” protections provided under Senate Bill 891 will expire on September 30, 2022.
