EVICTION MORATORIUM EXPIRES JUNE 30, SOME PROTECTIONS REMAIN
You can be evicted if you do not pay July and future rent, but you have time to get caught up on past due rent. Governor Kate Brown and the Oregon Legislature have extended protections for renters that make it illegal for landlords to evict people with past rental debt from April 2020 – June 2021. You’ll have more time to repay previous rental debt. However, starting July 1, you will not be protected by the moratorium for July rent and will need to pay your current rent each month to avoid being evicted. If you fear you might not make July rent, get started on a rental assistance application right away. Details below:
