Housing Laws

Oregon's housing laws protect victims of domestic violence, sexual assault and stalking. You can be let out of your lease, get your locks changed, and/or the abuser's tenancy can be terminated.  Also, the landlord cannot discriminate against you based on the fact that you are a victim by refusing to rent to you or by terminating your lease due to police activity at your home after an incident of domestic violence, sexual assault or stalking.
