On Sunday March 20, 2020 Governor Kate Brown issued an executive order stopping all residential evictions for non-payment of rent for the next 90 days.
This means that if your tenant is unable to pay April's rent you will not be able to require them to vacate.
This order was signed after the city of Portland, Beaverton and Gresham already outlined rules around non-payment of rent and evictions. It is not clear which aspects of the city rules will remain intact at this time.
We know this is both unexpected and for many will stress your financial resources. We strongly encourage you to contact your mortgage provider and see if you can negotiate a payment arrangement with them if necessary.
In the meantime we have sent out a survey to all of the residents asking them to proactively inform us if they foresee challenges with their ability to pay in April and May. Your property manager will update you accordingly.
For reference regarding our monthly fee please see section 6.6 of your Property Management Agreement.
A: Some of our clients have reached out and offered to help and provide flexible terms. Our goals is to determine which residents need help via our survey. If your tenant is one of the people who need help, we will let you know. From there you can discuss a plan with your property managers.
