SALEM, Ore. -- With Governor Kate Brown's eviction moratorium ending at the end of September, a recently passed law in Salem gives renters more protection after the date passes.
House Bill 4213 extended the governor's ban on evicting tenants from residential and commercial properties until Sept. 30 as the pandemic continues to keep people from working. However, any missed rent payments are not due on that day according to the law.
The law is designed to give renters a grace period to pay off any debts owed. Tenants have until March 31, 2021, to pay dues from April 1 to Sept. 30. Landlords cannot evict anyone for missed payments during that time frame until the end of March.
All landlords and tenants must also still follow current housing laws involving notice of evictions and late-payments.
