Oregon Landlord Tenant Law lays down the rights and responsibilities of tenants in Oregon . It answers the following questions: Can a landlord make the tenant pay a deposit? Can a landlord force the tenant to leave the rental unit? Should the tenant clean the rental unit before moving out? What is a rental agreement? Does the tenant have to give notice to the landlord before moving out?
Oregon Landlord Tenant Law allows the tenant to use the small claims court when the landlord does not return a deposit after the tenant has move out. The tenant can also use the small claims court if the landlord unlawfully destroys the tenants' things. He may use the court and its services if the landlord does not take up the repairs required by law. The tenant can use the small claims court even if the landlord enters the dwelling without the required notice. The landlord can be taken to the small claims court if he unlawfully shuts off the utilities or changes the locks.
The small claims court cannot ask the landlord to take up repair works or return possessions. It only has the power to award money for damages. The tenant cannot ask for more than 5000 dollars as damages in a small claims court. A tenant must sue the landlord for violations of the Oregon Residential Landlord and Tenant Act within one year of the incident.
According to Oregon Landlord Tenant Law, a landlord can evict a tenant only with the help of a court order. He cannot forcibly evict a tenant.

am a new landlord and this was the perfect site for
me to join. My friend who only has 2 rental units referred
me to LandlordOnline. The ease of use was the selling point
