The Eviction Moratorium is ending
As of July 1, every renter in Oregon must pay their current rent or risk being evicted.
If you want more time to pay your past due rent, you must provide a Declaration of Hardship to your landlord.
If you do not provide your landlord a signed declaration, they are allowed to give you an eviction notice based on nonpayment of past due rent, beginning in July 2021.
