Have you ever received a 30 or 60 day no-cause eviction notice? Or know someone who has? Take our online survey! It’s quick and takes about 5 minutes to complete. The purpose of the survey is to see how no-cause evictions impact tenants and we also want to know if no-cause evictions are being used as a form of retaliation. To take the survey click here or the link below, please share the survey with anyone that has received a 30 or 60 day no-cause eviction notice.

Then call the Renters’ Rights Hotline: (503) 288-0130
In order to work towards our mission of safe, stable and affordable rental homes, tenants need a place to call home. So the Education Program works to provide tenants with the basic information and strategies we need to know what our rights are and how to protect them. With this knowledge, we stand a better chance of maintaining our housing and being able to focus on building more protections for tenants under the law. The Education Program is run almost totally by the membership- tenants helping tenants. So we are able to provide something that no other group in Oregon can- concrete information about landlord-tenant law in everyday language, that real renters can understand. We also work with folks one-on-one to come up with a strategy that fits their particular situation. Because many of us have been through similar situations, we understand what people who use the hotline are going through.
The Education Program has three components:
1. The Renters’ Rights Hotline gives tenants detailed information about their rights and practical suggestions to help protect those rights. We can help renters anywhere in Oregon. The hotline operates most afternoons and some evening and weekend times.
2. Workshops in the community (usually the greater Portland area) to provide an orientation to landlord-tenant law and to give renters information needed to protect our rights, and
3. A series of renter information brochures explaining the law in everyday language and suggesting courses of action that will increase the ability of renters to remain in our current homes.
All Education Program services are available in both Spanish and English, with access to other languages for many activities as well.
