Portland, Oregon, Rental Increases

Are there additional protections for Portland, Oregon residents?  Yes. Portland City Code 30.01.085 (c) provides additional renter’s protections in relation to rental increases.  If your landlord raises your rent by 10% or more within a 12 month period, you may be entitled to moving costs if you give notice within 14 days of receiving notice of the rental increase.  You are not entitled to your moving costs if the rental agreement is for a week-to-week tenancy, or if your landlord rents out only one dwelling unit in the City of Portland, or to a landlord who temporarily rents out the landlord’s principal residence during the landlord’s absence of not more than 3 years, or to tenants that occupy the same dwelling unit.
