I'm looking to see whether the state of Oregon has modified

This answer was rated:

I'm looking to see whether the state of Oregon has modified its regulation over how much landlords can increase rent? I am currently a month-to-month tenant but I have resided here for over 7 years.
JA: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state the property is in?
Customer: Oregon.
JA: What are the terms of the lease? Any issues related to maintenance or upkeep?
Customer: Month to month and I have lived here for over 7 years. The only issue with maintenance or upkeep is that we generally have to do it all.
JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: No, thanks.

Oregon has no rent control. Meaning that the landlords are NOT limited in raising the rent next contract cycle in any way. The latest proposal to have rent control has failed - see HERE.

So there IS no limit and no regulation. There hasn't been.

Now, if you are talking about a specific county, or municipality, let me know and I can check, although I do not believe any in Oregon have any.

I'm in Washington County, but I don't believe we have any special ordinances. I appreciate your help with this.Slightly related question - are tenants obligated to maintain yards?Thanks again!

No problem.

Tenants are not mandated to maintain yards by statute.

This means they do not have to.

However if the contract states that yards are part of the property leased AND that they will maintain it, then they do have to.

Washington County has no rent control from what I can see.

The state of Oregon still has 90 days notice for rent increases, though, right?

In a month to month tenancy, yes.
