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.
