Rights of tenants in conversion


Prior to the sale of any dwelling unit which is to be retained as a unit in the conversion condominium without substantial alteration in its physical layout, the declarant shall first offer to sell the respective unit to the tenant who occupies the unit. The offer shall:


Terminate 60 days after its receipt or upon written rejection of the offer by the tenant, whichever occurs earlier.


Be accompanied by a copy of all applicable disclosure statements issued by the Real Estate Commissioner pursuant to ORS 100.700 (Inspection of condominium).


Not constitute a notice to terminate the tenancy.


The tenant’s dwelling unit may not be shown to any prospective purchasers of a conversion condominium unit without the tenant’s permission before the termination of the tenancy.


The declarant shall not sell the unit to a person other than the tenant during the 60 days following the termination of an offer to the tenant under subsections (1) and (2) of this section at a price or on terms more favorable to the purchaser than the price or terms offered to the tenant.


After the property has been submitted to the provisions of the Oregon Condominium Act, the declarant, until a unit is offered for sale in accordance with subsections (1) and (2) of this section, shall notify in writing any prospective tenant, prior to the commencement of the tenancy, that the property has been submitted to the provisions of the Oregon Condominium Act and the rights of a tenant under subsections (1) to (3) of this section.

Notes of Decisions

Even if declarations filed for purpose of bringing development within condominium law were defective for failure to conform to statutory requirements, development was not vitiated but deficiencies would constitute mistake in transaction thus making instrument eligible for reformation in equity. Dickey v. Barnes, Mossberg, 268 Or 226, 519 P2d 1252 (1974)

Developers of planned unit developments which are not organized as condominiums cannot claim the tax advantages of the Unit Ownership Law. Brooks Resources v. Dept. of Rev., 276 Or 1177, 558 P2d 312 (1976)

Purchasers of condominium units are automatically members of the unit owners association and subject to its declaration and bylaws; where those declarations and bylaws provide discretion to the Board of Directors to assess for fees necessary to create a "unified plan for the development and operation" of the condominium, and the purchaser has alleged no abuse of discretion, the judgment of the Board of Directors is upheld.
