CDC Eviction Mortarium Over, but Oregon Laws Still Apply

| August 27, 2021

Eviction MoratoriumThe U.S. Supreme Court voted 6-3 yesterday to end the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC’s) eviction moratorium, citing the CDC’s lack of authority to issue such a ban without Congressional authorization. Oregon landlords no longer need to abide by the CDC eviction moratorium.  However, Oregon still has many laws in place that limit tenancy terminations and evictions. Among other restrictions, landlords may not terminate a tenancy for nonpayment of rent, fees or other charges that accrued between April 1, 2020 and June 30, 2021 until after February 28, 2022. Additionally, tenants are protected from eviction for 60 days (90 in Multnomah County) if they have provided documentation to their landlord that they have applied for rental assistance.
