A NEW TYPE OF LAW FIRM FOR THE COLUMBIA RIVER GORGE
Oregon Residential Landlord-Tenant Attorney
Oregon landlord-tenant laws are incredibly complex and became more-so with the passage of new rent-control legislation in 2019 that also bans "no-cause" evictions. Without qualified counsel, many landlords seek a "DIY" alternative to save money and then find themselves in difficult, unexpected positions that end up costing them a great deal of money and time. Overland Law will help you do it right, the first time, to save time and money in the long-run. Landlord-tenant law is a main focus of the practice and we primarily represent landlords with less-than 20 properties.
Overland Law assists landlords with:
Preparing and reviewing rental documents, including leases.
Calculating proper rental increases
Nonpayment of rent
Eviction action in Circuit Court
Post-Judgment issues like renter property left-behind
Attorney Marcus J. Swift represented a family who had not been paid rent for over a year by their tenant. When evicted, the tenants claimed issues with mold. Appearing in Wasco County Circuit Court, Attorney Swift successfully argued at trial against that defense and the Judge ruled completely in the landlord's favor.
A landlord in The Dalles was facing a repeatedly unruly tenant in a mobile home. Attorney Swift worked with the landlord to provide proper notice to the tenant and work with the tenant to get back on track with following the rules. This resulted in avoiding court and legal fees and keeping the unit occupied.
