In February 2019, landlord-tenant law saw a significant shift in the state of Oregon. For both landlords and tenants, laws have changed, and it's important that you know your rights. This new law has limitations on no-cause terminations as well as rent increases. Some important things to take away from this new bill include:
There are penalties that you as a landlord will face if you fail to comply with the new law. For example, a landlord that increases rent in violation of SB 608 could be liable to their tenant in an amount equal to 3 months' rent plus actual damages suffered by the tenant.
