Dear Members,

Thank you to all those that have made arrangements to attend the hearing on HB 2004.

We NEED to fill the seats in the hearing room!  We have to be represented and only you can help.

You will find text of the measure in this link HB 2004. If you plan to testify, please prepare a short statement (less than two minutes in length) as to how this bill will impact you as landlords. Let me know if I can help.

HB 2004 PROHIBITS landlords from terminating a month-to-month tenancy without cause, except under certain circumstances, with 90 days' written notice and payment of relocation expenses that could be upwards of $5000.

It also REQUIRES fixed term tenancies to become month-to-month tenancies on the ending date, unless the tenant elects to renew or terminate tenancy and requires the landlord to make tenant an offer to renew fixed term tenancy.

Repeals the statewide prohibition on city and county ordinances controlling rents.

Declares emergency making it effective on passage.



If you plan to go, please contact Jim Straub, ld@oregonrha.com

Thanks in advance!

Jim Straub
ORHA Legislative Director
