We helped our disabled daughter purchase a condo in Portland, OR. She tried to be as self-sufficient as possible. We got copies of the HOA bylaws before purchase, but have been informed that things are handled there differently than what the bylaw...
The Fair Housing Act requires an HOA to make reasonable accommodations for people with disabilities to use and enjoy their homes as any non-disabled person. From what you're stating, it definitely seems likely the HOA is running afoul of the law. You or your daughter might want to contact their own attorney or the Fair Housing Council of Oregon, a nonprofit specializing in housing discrimination (including disability discrimination). They also have a lot of resources on their site: http://www.fhco.org Good luck,See question
I have a tenant who is no longer in contract so is now month-to-month by default. I served the notice to the tenant dated on 3/1/17 but was not delivered to the tenant until 3/21/17. In the letter, I stated that the tenant has 60 days to vacate ...
Without looking at the contents of notice or understanding why the delay in delivery, it's hard to guess for certain as to whether you'll need to start over. Especially under these circumstances, it would probably be a good idea to at least consult with your own attorney if you plan to evict the tenant based on this notice.See question
I am a joint signer on my son's checking account. I was told that if he has a garnishment against that account, they could also take any account that I am a signer on at that bank even if he is not a signer. I am a county treasurer and want to be ...
I can't imagine any garnishment would touch your personal or corporate accounts, but you might want to double check with your bank to make sure all of your accounts are titled correctly and that they don't accidentally have him as an additional owner or signer on any accounts that he shouldn't be (or if you're really concerned, move the accounts to a different bank than your son's).

My brother bought a 1997 dodge 4x4 "as is" and the guy didn't even own it he owed 600$ still on it and he didn't have the title cause the guy wouldn't give it to him till he paid it off. But sold it to my brother and my brother had no idea he sti...
There's not really a question here, but if you feel like you should sue him, go for it. You would likely be best off filing in small claims. Your county courthouse will have forms and instructions available. Of course, even if you can serve the seller and win in court, it might be hard to collect from someone who owes $600 on an $800 truck. Good luck,See question
I was unable to give written 30 day notice. I did send them email and a voicemail and a text message. I didn't know that the lease specifically said 'written' notice.
Typically not, and so I agree with Mr. Abbott, with a few small caveats:
If you're the tenant (your question doesn't say) and you give a technically defective notice, your landlord may accept the notice and require you to vacate when you said that you would. Of course, you would be safer to have given the proper notice and you might want to seek clarity in writing from your landlord that they've received your notice and that they agree your lease will terminate on whatever date.
If you're the landlord, and you give a defective notice, there's still a chance that your tenants will leave when you asked them to. If so, problem solved. However, if they don't, you'll be stuck starting over providing an appropriate notice or risk bringing an eviction action in court, losing, and having your tenants remain while you're stuck paying their attorney fees (and still having to start over with the correct notice).
Good luck,See question
I was served a Notice of Restitution on Friday the 24th taped to my front door between 1pm & 4pm. The document states to vacate by 11:59pm on the 27th. The State of Oregon allows 4 days in order to vacate with the notice commencing at 12:01am the ...
You might want to try calling the clerk to see if you can get some clarity. Obviously better still would be to have talked to your own attorney by now. But realistically, it appears that you've been evicted and the only question left to answer is whether the sheriff is able to come out today (did they?) or tomorrow and remove you from the property. Or at best, you might be able to buy yourself another 4 days. So while rushing to an attorney might give you a way to postpone the eviction, you also might be better off investing your time and energy in moving your stuff into storage or a new place, if that project isn't completed yet.See question
My landlord gave me an oral eviction notice of 30 days. The new owner of my rental needs to inhabit the premises. I live in Oregon and have lived at this house for 9 years. I have been told by several people that I have to be provided 60 days not...
To give a 30 day notice rather than 60 day, the landlord's sale must meet three criteria:
(a) The dwelling unit is purchased separately from any other dwelling unit;
(b) The landlord has accepted an offer to purchase the dwelling unit from a person who intends in good faith to occupy the dwelling unit as the person’s primary residence; and
(c) The landlord has provided the notice, and written evidence of the offer to purchase the dwelling unit, to the tenant not more than 120 days after accepting the offer to purchase.
And yes, the notice must be in writing. If mailed, the landlord must give an additional 3 days for mailing. If your landlord hasn't met all these steps yet still attempts to evict you (or you have other questions), you should contact your own attorney for advice.See question
When I signed my lease, I did so knowing that one of the current tenants has an "emotional support dog". I was told that it was a 1-2 black lab that was trained as a support animal. The dog is 10 months and is yellow lab rottweiler mix and is not ...
It's not clear how you knew one of the tenants had a support animal. Did the landlord tell you? The tenant?
Regardless, I doubt that you have a claim against your landlord or a basis to terminate the lease, but you might have a claim against your co-tenant if he or she made a promise regarding the condition of the dog.
If you cannot live there longer because of the dog, I would certainly recommend either working out a written termination agreement with your landlord or consulting with your own attorney about the risks before simply attempting to walk away from your lease.See question

Without knowing how the order and judgment read, it's hard to say for certain, but generally a judgment and order aren't stayed during an appeal or request for reconsideration without a written stay from the court. This would likely require posting a bond before the stay would be granted.
Challenging the motion for summary judgment or overturning it after the fact would be easier with your own attorney.See question
