What is the landlord's responsibility in mold remediation in Oregon?

Portland, OR |

Can you also direct me to any legal documents that would help.

Dear Portlander,

The landlord needs to provide habitable premises. If you feel like anyone is getting ill, then you need to seek medical attention and ask for temporary housing elsewhere until landlord fixes the problem.

If you are significantly ill from it, then you might consider getting the place tested for types of mold and concentration.

The above is not legal advice. I cannot give you sound advice without knowing more information. It is intended to raise some issues for you to discuss with your own lawyer.
