The Oregon standard residential lease agreement is the most common rental contract, one which lasts one (1) year with rent payments made by the tenant on a monthly basis. Landlords are encouraged to screen tenants with the rental application before signing any type of agreement. The information collected through the application helps the landlord determine whether a long-term lease is suitable for the applicant. As with other rental contracts, a security deposit may be collected before officially authorizing a lease agreement.
