January 2021 Forms Update

Posted By: Jonathan Clay Central Oregon , Industry News , Mid-Willamette Valley , Portland/SW Washington , SWV News ,

At a minimum, the Multifamily NW Forms Collection is updated four times a year, at the start of each quarter. In recent years, that pace has doubled and even tripled as the Multifamily NW Forms Committee and legal team quickly pivot to accommodate the steady legal changes coming from local and state jurisdictions.

Below we’ve detailed the Forms Collection updates as of January 2021, many from HB 4401 which passed during the 3rd Special Session of the Oregon Legislature in December of 2020. Click the links to view sample copies of the forms.

Secure the forms you need electronically via the e-commerce website RentalFormsCenter.com, or alternatively via the electronic forms subscription service from TenantTech.com. Paper triplicate forms are also available to order from the MultifamilyNW.org website.

1st Quarter Forms Update - (January 1st, 2021):

OREGON:

M001 OR Rental Agreement 
M201 OR Single Family/Condo/Multiplex Rental Agreement 

References to the Terms and Conditions on page 1 and 2 have been changed to name the section title instead of the section number. This was done to reduce errors that happen inadvertently when new sections are added and the Terms and Conditions are renumbered.

M008 OR Statement of Deposit Accounting (Not for Portland) 
M528 OR Statement of Deposit Accounting (Portland)
M529 OR Statement of Final Accounting (No Security Deposit) (Portland)

The HUD Disclosure was removed in order to comply with new legislation. HUD users should evaluate compliance requirements before pursuing balance delinquencies after tenants move out.
