Customer Question
I live on a public...
I live on a public access road in Charleston Oregon. There are large pot holes in the road creating difficulty entering or leaving my home. Since it is public access the Coos County Department of Roads says it is up to locals on the road to fix the pot holes. The Landlord has 5 rental properties on this road and refuses to fix the pot holes. Is there any redress for those of us who rent? Please Advise. Dr. G. ****** ***-***-****

Hello, my name is ***** ***** I will try to help you. Please remember I just report or interpret the law, so the outcome may not be what you hoped for.

A public access road in Oregon is essentially a private road. The county is not responsible for maintaining it unless it chooses to do so. It is the responsibility of the abutting property owners to maintain the road. Given the position of the county the responsibility for maintenance falls on all the land owners along the road. The best you can do is try to force the landowners to make the necessary repairs but that will probably require a court action. Your landlord could not be required to assume the entire burden of repair himself just his share of the cost.

I am sorry to be the bearer of bad news but there is no simple solution if the land owners do not maintain the road.

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
