Information for renters
New laws

Through no fault of their own, renters can face eviction if the home they rent falls into foreclosure. The Oregon Legislature passed two bills in 2009 to help renters.

 
Tenants in foreclosure – SB 952 and HB 3004 (2009). These bills help Oregon renters living in foreclosed homes by requiring advance notice of the foreclosure proceedings and providing protections related to leases and security deposits. The notice will provide information about tenants’ rights and where they can go for assistance.
 
Protecting Tenants at Foreclosure Act (PTFA) The National Low Income Housing Coalition has information on its Web site about this act, which is Section VII of the Helping Families Keep Their Homes Act.
