“No […] rodents or cockroaches in your place or common areas around the building when you move in or throughout your tenancy.”
As the weather gets colder, unwelcome critters such as mice or roaches may try to enter your home.
ORS 90.320 states that the landlord must keep your unit and common areas in good repair and free from infestations such as rodents and pests:
Document any infestation, take photos, submit a repair request letter, and if your city has an inspections program, contact the city inspector if the issue is not properly addressed. You may be entitled to a reduced rental value if the problem is persistent.
