The Oregon month-to-month rental agreement is used to legally establish the agreement between a landlord and a tenant for a period of one month. The tenant pays a monthly fee in exchange for the use of the landlord’s property. When the month ends, the contract automatically renews until canceled.
The agreement is only for a month but continues in effect unless terminated by either party by giving a 30-days written notice.
Leases that are longer than one-month convert to a month-to-month tenancy if the landlord allows the tenant to continue to stay in the rental unit after the lease termination date.
Oregon Notice Requirements for Month-to-Month Lease Termination
A month-to-month rental agreement in Oregon can be terminated by either the landlord or the tenant. The party who wishes to terminate the lease gives the other party a 30-days written notice before the termination date.
Rent Control in Oregon
Oregon rent control laws under section 90.600 limit an annual rent increase to seven percent plus the average amount of inflation for the previous year. In 2019, the rent increase in Oregon was limited to seven percent plus 3.3 percent for inflation for a total maximum rent increase limit of 10.3 percent.
Landlords are prohibited from evicting tenants without cause just so that they can raise the rent, even if the landlord gives the tenant a 30-days notice.
