In Oregon, when you have a tenancy that goes from month to month it may also be referred to as a periodic tenancy. How is it then that the landlord will end such an ongoing arrangement? The landlord must provide the tenant with a thirty (30) day notice and it must be in written form.
There needs to be no reason, cause or purpose to do this nor is it required to list in the notice the motive behind wanting possession of the residential property returned. So, if you decide you want to paint the entire inside of the rental unit, want to keep it vacant for the tax write-off (just kidding) or want to move in your sweet aunt who has just moved to Oregon; that is entirely up to you! BUT, proper notice must be give first.
The “ezLandlordForms Oregon 30-Day Notice – No Cause “ is simple and easy to use. After you choose the rental property the notice will be sent for in your list of rental properties; fill in the date in the next step and voila! Your form is created and ready to go.
MAILING FIRST CLASS: In Oregon if you are mailing the notice then you will need to take the time of mailing into consideration. This is done by adding three days however, you do not include the day of service so you would actually add four days to the thirty days. If you are personally delivering the notice, than the three extra days is not needed.
Be sure to keep a copy of this notice for your records. It is probably good to have some type of proof if you served it personally rather than mailing. A service of notice form would work perfectly.
Jot down on your calendar or in your smart phone to remind you when the thirty days are up. If your tenant does not move out on or before the time in the notice, the landlord will then have to go through eviction. That will require an additional notice.
