Hello Jeffrey: I am saddened to read about your situation.
Your former friends have not given you a proper notice to move out. They must give you a written notice to move out. Also, even if they did, you do not have to move out at the expiration of the notice. They must go to Court and file eviction action against you and obtain permission from the Court in order to remove you from the premises. There is no self-remedy to eviction actions in the state of Oregon. So, they cannot lock you out or throw your things out in order to force you out. They must use the Court system to accomplish the eviction action. For more information, click here. However, if the place is no longer safe for you, you need to start looking for alternate housing and move out as soon as you find one.
