Oregon Residential Lease Agreement
The Oregon residential lease agreement template is the most common type of rental contract as it is for the standard one (1) year term and lets both parties come to general terms over the use of the property and facilities. All parties and the document should be written to follow all State laws (Chapter 91- Tenancy) and the landlord must ensure the proper disclosures are enclosed.
The landlord is encouraged to screen the tenant through the rental application before signing any type of agreement. This will ensure that the person occupying the space has a low chance of damaging the property and not paying rent in a timely fashion.
