(1)The State of Oregon encourages affordable housing options for all Oregonians. One housing alternative chosen by many Oregonians is facility living. The Legislative Assembly finds that many facility tenants would like to join together, alone or in cooperation with an associated entity, to purchase the facility in which the tenants live in order to have greater control over the costs and environment of their housing. The Legislative Assembly also finds that current market conditions place tenants at a disadvantage with other potential investors in the purchase of facilities.
(2)It is the policy of the State of Oregon to encourage facility tenants to participate in the housing marketplace by ensuring that technical assistance, financing opportunities, notice of sale of facilities and the option to purchase facilities are made available to tenants who choose to participate in the purchase of a facility.
(3)The purpose of ORS 90.800 (Policy) to 90.850 (Owner affidavit certifying compliance with requirements for sale of facility), 456.579 (Manufactured Dwelling Parks Account) and 456.581 (Uses of Manufactured Dwelling Parks Account) is to strengthen the private housing market in Oregon by encouraging all Oregonians to have the ability to participate in the purchase of housing of their choice.
