When To Use an Oregon 24 Hour Notice To Vacate

An Oregon 24 Hour Notice To Vacate begins the eviction process when a tenant repeats an alcohol or other prohibited substances sharing violation within six (6) months of the previous noncompliance. This notice applies to housing which is designated alcohol- and drug-free.

Some types of Oregon lease termination notice may allow different reasons for termination, or different notice periods. This may also apply to an eviction notice issued because of a lease or legal violation.

  7. Complete the certificate of service by indicating the date and method of notice delivery, along with printed name and signature

Oregon landlords may deliver a Notice To Vacate using any of these methods:

  1. Hand delivery to the other party
