Our office has successfully handled matters on both sides of landlord/tenant issues. This approach has provided a unique insight into the strengths and weaknesses of each side in the dispute.
Under Oregon Law, landlords and tenants each have duties to one another. Unfortunately, sometimes these relationships require the intervention of a legal professional in order to overcome disagreements. The Landlord Tenant Act, which specifies these duties and outlines the rights of the parties, can be confusing and may expose a party to unforeseen consequences.
A landlord client is usually concerned with lease violations such as late or unpaid rent and pet violations, which may lead to the landlord's representation in the eviction process. Landlords whose former tenants have a balance due as a result of property damage and non-payment of rent should read the Creditor's Rights section.
Renters may need an advocate to discuss their concerns relating to lease violations such as poor maintenance or negligence by the landlord. When communicating alone, renters may be at a bargaining disadvantage due to a landlord's economic resources. In some cases, landlords may be liable to tenants for monetary damages due to lease and/or statutory violations.
Please contact us in order to discuss your situation and particular needs. Whether you are a landlord seeking to evict a tenant or a tenant hoping for repairs to the property, our office can assist you in completing those tasks plus many more.
