2018 2nd Quarter Special Update - Portland Relocation (May):

OREGON:

M001 OR Rental Agreement

- The box on page one in the Tenancy section which provided for an automatic rent increase at the end of a fixed term was deleted. It was causing issues with the City of Portland relocation ordinance and the reason it was originally added (addressing an ambiguity in the statute prohibiting rent increases during the first year of a month to month tenancy) has largely gone away.

- An “Automatic Expiration” option was added to the Tenancy section on page one allowing a fixed-term to terminate automatically at its expiration, without rolling to month-to-month. Thus, if a new fixed-term is offered on substantially the same terms as the expiring lease, and is not accepted by the tenant, the automatic expiration avoids the City of Portland relocation assistance payment as no termination notice need be issued.

- Section 6 of the terms and conditions was modified to match the changes listed above.
