Information > Eviction, Going to Court
Please note: These resources are primarily aimed at low-income tenants. If you are a landlord seeking information, please also see the Oregon State Bar Landlord and Tenant Resources page.
Since July 1, 2021, renters were able to pause evictions for nonpayment by giving their landlords written proof that they have applied for rent assistance. If the proof was given before the landlord filed a termination case, the landlord was not allowed to file an eviction case until the application no longer pending, or until October 1, 2022. If the proof was given after the landlord filed the eviction case, the court would pause the case until October 1, 2022, or the application was approved or denied. After June 30, 2022, providing proof of an application for rent assistance will not pause eviction proceedings.
