Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I will try my very best to help with your situation or get you to someone who can. There may be a slight delay in my responses as I research statutes or ordinances and type out an answer or reply, but rest assured, I am working on your question.
If you have been living there over a brief time and have moved your personal belongings in, then you would gain the legal rights of an occupant. This means that if the tenant or owner of the property want to force you to leave, they have to give you a written 30 day notice to terminate your occupancy. (Ore. Rev. Stat. §§ 91.070, 90.427, 90.275)
After that, if you didn't vacate, then they have to pursue a formal eviction through the courts to obtain a judgment and a writ of possession that the sheriff would then execute to physically force you to leave and deliver legal possession to the landlord. This takes about 3-4 weeks after the 30 day notice expires, depending on the court's and sheriff's schedules.
