Beginning May 19th, 2021, the State of Oregon has expanded eligibility to expunge records of some past evictions. Expungement means that the eviction record is erased. The court treats the eviction as if it never happened. When a prospective landlord searches the tenant’s eviction history, the expunged eviction should not show up. When a prospective landlord asks if an applicant has ever been evicted, the applicant can answer “no” if the eviction has been expunged.
