House Bill 4401, a new housing law, has passed through Oregon Legislation
Penalties for mistakes made can be expensive, we recommend you consult an attorney before you take any action against your resident(s).
HB 4401 requires Housing Providers to send the Notice of Eviction Protection and the Tenant Declaration form under certain circumstances. During the new Grace Period, if a Housing provider serves a 72- or 144-hour notice for non-payment (remember these are now 10- or 13-day notices through the end of June) for current rents due, serves any notice for termination for non-payment of rent or other charges, or sends a statement of account indicating that the resident has through March 31, 2021 to pay amounts owing that accrued during the Emergency Period that ended December 31, 2020, these forms MUST be included.
Residents must provide a signed declaration for household or tenancy declaring financial hardship, delivered to the Housing Provider in writing, email, text message or other method reasonably calculated to achieve receipt. If the declaration is provided to the Housing Provider, they are entitled to withhold payment and are not considered in default unless they fail to pay the balance by June 30, 2021.
Housing Providers are not required to send the Notice of Eviction Protection and the Tenant Declaration if they intend to allow their residents the full Grace Period through June 30, 2021.

Welcome to the Central Oregon Rental Owners Association
COROA is an organization of rental owners and managers who have joined together with a commitment to education and professionalism. Since 1979, COROA has been dedicated to helping rental owners and managers find and keep the best tenants, stay abreast of the latest rental laws, and protect their investments.
COROA members learn to treat their rentals as the business investment they are, and respect their tenants as the clients they are. Our monthly classes cover such topics as screening, evictions, abandoned property, law updates, tax advice and more. We understand that our members include not only seasoned professionals but also brand new rental owners, both of whom learn from the basic classes and also enjoy the more advanced class topics. Equally important is the networking that goes on at our monthly classes. As fellow landlords meet, ask questions, share experiences and learn great information, an association develops grounded on common goals and interests.
COROA represents more than 5000 rental housing units in Crook, Deschutes, Jefferson and Klamath Counties. Our members own or manage as few as one, or more than several hundred units. We are currently the third largest rental owners association in Oregon, and enjoy a membership of approximately 550.
Our affiliation with Oregon Rental Housing Association (ORHA) allows our membership to be part of a much larger and more powerful lobbying group dedicated to passing fair and balanced Landlord/Tenant Laws and legislation. We regularly enjoy speakers from ORHA at our monthly meetings.
Our office is currently working remotely and the hotline is being monitored.
We are located at 354 NE Greenwood, Suite 112 in Bend
Hotline hours: 12pm to 4pm, Monday-Thursday
