Portland Poised to Approve Sweeping Revisions to Landlord Tenant Laws

City of Portland staffers report that the city's Quality Rental Housing Workgroup (QRHWG) voted unanimously on September 22nd to support the final package of recommendations.

The Bureau of Housing and Community Development and the Bureau of Development Services are now working with the respective Commissioners-in-Charge to make sure that the recommendations of the workgroup are something that are politically feasible given the current economic conditions. The recommendations and the associated budget requests are expected to go to the Portland City Council "in the next month or so."
