Legal Guidelines: Neahcasa Years 2005 - 2011

Legal guidelines have been developed with the assistance of Legal Aid of Oregon. Translations into Spanish are included as well. This page includes links for tenants, landlords and for employee/tenant relationships.   Last updated in 2006, this is intended as a guide-only to the legal framework for landlord/tenant/employer relationships and to related legal resources.  Tenants and landlords are urged to retain legal assistance from attorneys experienced in current real estate law in Oregon.  Legal assistance may also be obtained through Legal Aid of Oregon located in Hillsboro.
