Important Update: Safe Harbor Eviction Protection Period Extended
- Oregon Legislators recently held a special session to extend eviction protections known as “Safe Harbor" protections in Oregon (SB 278). As a result of recent legislation, tenants have protection from eviction upon showing their documentation of rental assistance application to their landlord. These protections replace the 60-day period (90 days in some jurisdictions) and now cover the entire time an application is being processed (up until September 30, 2022.)
- In order to be protected, tenants must give proof of application to their landlord right away (by June 30, 2022 at the latest, or at or before any first court appearance, whichever is sooner.)
- Anyone who has already applied for assistance and shown documentation of their application to their landlord at or before any first court appearance is now protected from nonpayment eviction until their application is processed.
- Landlords are required to give 10 days of notice of termination of tenancy for nonpayment until September 30, 2022.
- Landlords may begin eviction proceedings if you've missed rent and haven't begun an application – apply to an open rental assistance program right away to access these protections!
- If your application is closed or denied or paid in an amount that is less than is owed, your landlord can move forward with the eviction process for unpaid months.
