Oregon’s residential landlord tenant law is contained in Chapter 90 of the Oregon Revised Statutes. The statutes are designed to protect both landlords and tenants. So long as they are not contrary to any statute, the terms of the lease between the landlord and tenant generally determine the rights and obligations between the parties. As a landlord, it is important to prepare a carefully-drafted lease, and as a tenant, it is equally important to know exactly how the lease affects your rights before signing.
