Residential Landlord and Tenant

ORS 90.514
Disclosure to prospective tenant of improvements required under rental agreement


Before a prospective tenant signs a rental agreement for space in a manufactured dwelling park or for a converted rental space, the landlord must provide the prospective tenant with a written statement that discloses the improvements that the landlord will require under the rental agreement. The written statement must be in the format developed by the Attorney General pursuant to ORS 90.516 (Model statement for disclosure of improvements required under rental agreement) and include at least the following:


A notice that the tenant may select and contract directly with a contractor to be the provider of an improvement.


Separately stated and identifiable information for each required improvement that specifies:


The dimensions, materials and finish for improvements to be constructed;


The installation charges imposed by the landlord and the installation fees imposed by government agencies;


The system development charges to be paid by the tenant; and


The site preparation requirements and restrictions, including, but not limited to, requirements and restrictions on the use of plants and landscaping.


Identification of the improvements that belong to the tenant and the improvements that must remain with the space.


Except as provided in ORS 41.740 (Parol evidence rule), a written statement provided under this section is considered to contain all of the terms relating to improvements that a prospective tenant must make under the rental agreement. There may be no evidence of the terms of the written statement other than the contents of the written statement. [2001 c.282 §3; 2005 c.41 §4]
