Legislature Bans Tenancy Terminations for Nonpayment and No Cause Until October

FREE for MBA members | $30 Non-members

This is part of a series of CLE seminars the MBA CLE Committee is offering to MBA members for FREE to help you navigate the current legal environment related to the COVID-19 virus. Seminar participation is available by remote attendance only via Zoom, a live videoconferencing software. You do not need to have a Zoom account in order to access the seminar and may attend using your computer or telephone. Additional information will be provided to registrants. 

As a result of Governor Brown signing into law HB 4213 (effective June 30), Oregon landlords - both residential and commercial - will continue to be unable to terminate tenancies for nonpayment and - for residential only - for no cause (with one exception) until October 1. An emergency period has been instituted that runs from April 1 to September 30, 2020. During that period, landlords may not terminate for nonpayment, whether of the current month’s rent, previous months’ rent, or virtually any other charge a landlord may charge under a rental agreement or law. Also, during that period, landlords may not begin or continue an eviction action based on a nonpayment notice delivered after April 1, assess a late fee or penalty based on the nonpayment balance, or report the balance to a consumer credit reporting agency (residential only). Landlords must avoid interfering with a tenant’s possession until the emergency period expires. The statute repeals itself on March 31, 2021.

Our speakers will be Troy Pickard, who routinely represents tenants, and Pete Meyers, who routinely represents landlords, as they walk us through these new requirements.
