Senate Bill 278 and CDC Moratorium Extension

With laws constantly changing, housing providers are strongly encouraged to seek legal advice prior to serving any notice of termination for nonpayment. Senate Bill 278, which was signed into law on June 24, 2021, temporarily "requires that when serving a notice for nonpayment, the landlord must include a notice about a tenant’s rights to be protected from eviction." The required notice can be found at the ORHA Website, and the ORHA Forms Store site.

In addition the CDC has extended the eviction moratorium to the end of July 2021.

"The CDC moratorium prohibits eviction of “covered persons,” and applies in states whose rules are less restrictive than the CDC rules. Since the implementation of the CDC rules months ago, Oregon’s rules have been considered by many to be more restrictive; however, with this one-month extension, and the new rules imposed by SB 278, we are unsure if this is still the case."
