Individuals who are interested in leasing a property from a landlord are provided with an Oregon rental/lease application form. For handling the application, conducting a credit check, and ordering certain reports, the property manager or landlord will typically charge a non-refundable fee. The property manager will decide whether to draft a rental lease agreement for signing after the background checks are confirmed.
Application Fee: The landowner may charge an application fee, but only up to the actual cost. (§ 90.295).
Security Deposit - Under Section 90.300, the landlord is not limited to a maximum amount that can be charged as an initial deposit.
Any inquiries concerning race when filling out rental applications are prohibited by the federal Fair Housing Act (FHA). Discrimination is illegal in all aspects of housing, including purchases and leases, according to the 1968-founded FHA.
Anti-discrimination laws forbid asking both racial questions and nationality, in order to protect ethnic minorities from discrimination. Additionally, it is not permitted to ask a candidate about their mother tongue, birthplace, adoption location, or parents' birthplace.
It is not permitted to inquire about religion on rental applications. During an in-person or phone interview, it is best not to ask candidates about their interest in local churches, mosques, or synagogues.
Choosing tenants for rental properties on the basis of age is also prohibited. Landlords, on the other hand, have the right to reject applicants who are unable to sign a legally binding contract due to varioous factors. Parental consent is frequently required to co-sign even though landlords are allowed to lease to minors.
If a landlord has any concerns about psychological or physical problems, they may be in for serious legal trouble. It is unacceptable to inquire about service animals when interviewing potential tenants.
If the tenants fulfill certain criteria and the landlord accepts their application with a service animal, the landlord must provide a suitable place of lodging for the animal.
Property owners are legally allowed to limit the number of occupants in each unit in order to adhere to health and safety regulations, but they are not allowed to discriminate based on the financial status of a family.
If a rental can only safely accommodate a maximum of four people, for example, landlords are not allowed to discriminate based on the relationships of prospective tenants.
