Renter's guide to Portland, OR

Known as “PDX” by the locals, Portland contains all of the modern amenities that a big city is expected to offer while still retaining the flowery look and charm of a small town. Located in the northernmost portion of the Willamette Valley (a 150-mile stretch of Oregon lowlands), Portland is surrounded by lush nature on all sides – the Columbia River and Willamette River work together to form two natural borders in the north and south, and the city is flanked with hilly trails that are perfect for long outdoor hikes. On a clear day, the beautiful rising slopes of Mount Hood are visible in the horizon.

Portland is the largest city in Oregon, nearly twice as large as Seattle. For music lovers, Portland is only 173 miles south of Seattle, WA. For those with an interest in Native American history, Portland is 351 miles southwest of Spokane, WA, and if you ever want to visit another equally forward-thinking city, then Portland is 636 miles north of San Francisco, which is about a 10-hour drive.

Tips for renting in Portland, OR

If you are moving from Portland to California, expect a little friendly rivalry and ribbing from the local population. Other than that, their warm friendliness should make you feel right at home. Speaking of, Portland renters’ rights include a right to a “habitable” home, meaning all wiring, plumbing, pest control, and heating repairs must be paid in full by the landlord.

If the landlord fails to comply with an important responsibility, a tenant may withhold rent or exercise the right to “repair and deduct”. A landlord can enter a rental home only in a few specific circumstances - such as an emergency that requires the landlord to enter the unit - and usually must give the tenant at least 24 hours written notice before entering.
