Legal Answers
Q. Is ot legal to have broken windows that are boarded up an not fixed for over a month and it's 100 degrees outside?
A: I would also recommend that if you have not done so to tell your landlord in writing about the issues with the tenant. You can contact a local landlord tenant attorney to discuss if your right to quiet enjoyment as been violated as you may have a claim for money damages against your landlord. Good Luck.
Q. I reported a hornets nest right outside my bdrm window. How long do I have to wait for an answer from my landlord?
A: Under Oregon law your landlord has to respond within a reasonable timeframe. If you have not followed up with them and notified them that you are highly allergic, I would recommend that you do. Most apartment complexes have an emergency maintenance line that you can call. If you have not called that emergency maintenance line, you should do that as well too. If they do not respond to you within a reasonable timeframe, you should contact a local landlord tenant attorney to assist in helping you get matter repaired. Good luck.
Q. Does Portland ordinance for tenants supersede my short term guess agreement with my tenants
A: Short answer is no, you would most likely have to pay relocation fees and if you are terminating the month to month lease agreement and assuming that it has been more than 1 year they have been renting the property from you, you would have to give them a reason for termination of the tenancy. If that reason is because you are selling the property, you would need to have a month to month agreement with them, have accepted an offer from a buyer who is intending to use the property as their primary residence, pay relocation fees, and give not less than 90 days. If you have not spoken with a local landlord tenant attorney I would recommend speaking with an attorney to help with drafting and serving the notice of termination. good luck.
