The tenant has received an 90 day eviction notice which was up last month she refuses to pay rent and refuses to vacate. She had fallen down the stairs and was life flighted to a different hospital in Portland. She has no other family and the hospital can't tell me anything. Now for the house it's in probate and I am almost done getting the house into my name.
Assuming the termination of tenancy notice was technically valid and lawfully served, and its time has now expired without the tenant moving, your remedy is to file to evict her in court. Her being in a Hospital may complicate things and/or the date in court, but you likely can easily serve her both at the rental address and in her hospital bed - she should be easy to find. If she has not paid rent, then a simple 72 hour notice lawfully served should provide alternate or additional grounds for evicting her. Eviction is a technical process and unless you are VERY familiar with the process, you are likely well served to simply retain a landlord-tenant attorney's help if you want to win.
