How to Make Portland Rents Affordable Again: Build, Baby, Build.

housing supply and demand portland

Portland has been my hometown since I was nine years old.  When my father’s career brought us to town, Portland was a sleepy mid-sized city that, outside of a tech industry and sneaker colossus that were both in their infancy, seemed to be a decade behind the larger cities on the West Coast in most ways.

Credit Screening

Credit Screening

By Jo Becker, Education/Outreach Specialist Fair Housing Council of Oregon

It is a common practice for housing providers to screen applicants based on credit score and credit history. From a fair housing perspective, providers can decide how to set their credit criteria as long as they apply it consistently regardless of the protected class status of the applicant.

Portland City Council Acts to Stall Evictions and Rent Increases

Portland City Council Acts to Stall Evictions and Rent Increases

On October 14, 2015, the Portland City Council approved law changes to increase the amount of notice given to tenants for a no cause termination notice and on rent increases of 5% or more within the city of Portland. State law requires a landlord give 30 days notice when issuing a without stated cause termination notice for a tenancy less than one year, and 60 days notice to terminate a tenancy that is over one year. The new law requires a 90 day notice to terminate a tenancy for without stated cause in either situation.

Is It Really Rent Control?

Is It Really Rent Control?

New tenant protection ordinance passed by the Portland City Council in October of 2015

By Clifford A. Hockley, President

Bluestone & Hockley Real Estate Services

On October 14, 2015 the city commissioners of the City of Portland unanimously voted to modify the laws that govern landlord / tenant relations in the City of Portland. Their stated objective was to help tenants manage the low city vacancy rates.  These low vacancy rates are especially difficult for low income and disabled tenants to manage, because in order to move they need to save for moving costs, deposits and rent.  Most low income tenants live from paycheck to paycheck (or public assistance check) and find it difficult to save enough money to move.

Lead Safety, Testing, & Contractors

Lead Safety, Testing, & Contractors

By Jo Becker, Education/Outreach Specialist, Fair Housing Council of Oregon

One cannot see tiny specks of lead in household dust yet just a minuscule amount can be toxic enough to poison.  At greatest risk are children whose bodies and brains are still developing, as well as those with compromised immune systems.  The prevalence of lead-based paint used in older housing stock up until its ban in 1978 means that many homes in our area have such potential, if invisible, hazards.
