Oregon 30 Day Notice To Vacate

Download: PDF | Word

An Oregon 30-Day Notice To Vacate terminates a rental agreement, including a month-to-month lease in accordance with state law. Tenants may use this notice to terminate a month-to-month or fixed-term lease, and this notice may also terminate an expired lease or a situation with no written lease where the tenant pays rent monthly. The non-terminating party must receive notice at least thirty (30) calendar days before the date of termination.

During the first year of tenancy, landlords may use this notice to terminate a month-to-month or fixed-term lease. Afterward, landlords must have cause or a qualifying reason to terminate. There are certain cases involving sale which allow termination with 30 days of notice, but most terminations that are not evictions require more notice from the landlord.

How To Write an Eviction Notice in Oregon       

To help ensure the legal compliance of an eviction notice:

  1. Use the tenant’s full name and address
  2. Specify the lease violation as well as any balance due
  3. Specify the date of termination
  4. Print name and sign the notice, including the landlord’s address of record
  5. Note the date and method of notice delivery, along with printed name and signature

It is easy to lose an otherwise justified legal action because of improper notice. Check carefully to ensure enough time after notice is delivered, not when it’s sent.

How To Calculate Expiration Date in Oregon

The “clock” for an eviction notice period starts “ticking” the day after the notice gets delivered (served). For example, to give at least 30 days of notice and begin court action as of June 30th, delivery of the eviction notice must be no later than May 31st. 

Unlike most jurisdictions, in Oregon the last day of a notice period is not extended if it falls on a weekend or legal holiday. In addition, a notice for a number of hours (rather than days) takes place immediately upon personal delivery, or at 11:59pm on the date of service if it’s posted or mailed.

How To Serve an Eviction Notice in Oregon  

Oregon landlords may deliver an eviction notice using any of these methods:

  1. Hand delivery to the other party
  2. Delivery by first class mail
  3. Posting at a conspicuous place on the premises (if the parties have agreed in writing to this method of service), PLUS delivery by first class mail

Mailed notice extends the notice period by three (3) calendar days, to account for variable delivery times.
