  1. If he has paid rent for the next month, he could argue that you are his landlord and you must give him a 30 day notice. If he has not paid rent, he is a tenant at sufferance and you can give him a 72 hour notice. Make sure you have a witness with you when you give him notice.

    The rules associated with this are at ORS 90.392
