Landlords Rights & Restrictions

As a landlord, you are in a unique position of holding power over your building while remaining beholden to your tenants. In opening your property to the public, you are agreeing to uphold the basic standard of care required by landlords. This primarily means ensuring that the rented property is safe and reasonably comfortable for the tenants.

In Oregon, landlord responsibilities include:

  • Providing access to basic amenities: running water, electricity, heat, etc.
  • Making important repairs such as leaking pipes or broken heaters
  • Providing tenants with written lease or rental agreements
  • Providing tenants with a written disclosure of policies, such as smoking rules
  • Adhere to state rules when setting rent regulations, including late fees
  • Adhering to non-discrimination policies when renting to tenants
  • Ensuring rental properties are reasonably safe from hazards: smoke alarms, fire extinguishers, etc.
  • Functional locks for doors and windows

Your ability to exercise your rights as a landlord depends on your adherence to these and other regulations.
