Oregon tenants may soon have additional time to pay rent or find new housing during an eviction. Senate Bill 799 proposes to reinstate pandemic-era rules for landlords. The changes include providing tenants a 60-day “safe harbor period” to prevent eviction during a pending rental assistance application and extending the 72-hour eviction notice timeline to 10 days. Landlords would also be required to accept payment after the termination notice has lapsed.
