With Oregon expected to continue a statewide eviction ban for at least six more months, three landlords are asking a judge to end the policy.

In a suit filed in U.S. District Court Monday night, hours after lawmakers voted to extend the state moratorium, the group argued that policies enacted this year by Gov. Kate Brown, the state Legislative Assembly, Multnomah County and the city of Portland are unconstitutional because they hinder legal contracts and amount to the government “taking” their property without proper compensation.

This is crazy.
I'm not a landlord, but this is nuts.

If the government doesn't want people evicted an eviction ban is not the answer. They should make renters file something proving hardship and
have the government pay the landlords directly.

I already know what is going to happen. Any landlords left will require a crazy amount of security deposit, last, first, and some extra months rent.
You know they will also scrutinize people like never before. How is that going to help affordable housing (which I think we really do need)?
This system is already in place in other countries. This is only going to add to the homeless population.

I completely agree. And the solution you propose is a good one.
Through either ineptitude or malice, it looks at though property, wealth, and ownership is going back into the hands of the state.

Interesting OP!

Property rights is a topic that I was going to expand on later. Basically the state is acting as if the owners have none...

I hope you do! It's a very important issue, and also highly relevant.

QFE

The half-measures taken continue to indicate a total and complete failure of any viable leadership through COVID at the highest levels of this country. Starting with Trump and moving through the top leadership chains of the Dems and Replublicans both parties top leaders have failed us.

All the families or people that end up on the streets because of this need to demand better of American Leadership.

Aye they used to do that over here it's called Housing Benefit, they pay it to you now, and you pay the landlord.

Its to help pay your rent if you're unemployed or on a low income.

I would not have imagine many Americans would have been up for such a safety net all the same.

Isn't it interesting the gov who is causing the crashes intentionally isn't suspending property taxes, or all taxes they absolutely have the ability to do?

Time to suspend all politicians pay and seize their assets.

Damned commies....they get everywhere.
Imagine, government trying to make sure that landlords don't exploit the poor and vulnerable.

None of my renters have had an issue fortunately.
A couple were laid off but the extra unemployment was more than enough to pay the bills.

Which government is this? THe same one that's more interested in every pork project under the sun and illegals than it is in relief for American citizens? I'm just asking because I think you're funny if you think they actually care one whit for anyone.

I am convinced they are trying to strip us of everything, so we will have to depend on them.

If your livelihood, and your home is taken from you. Where do you turn?

My tenants did not pay me for March, but have paid the rest of the months, but March still hasn't been paid, and I will likely never see it.

I have also noticed that each month they are later and later with paying. It will eventually be another month that will be lost in this game.

I am an old lady and I am ready to throw in the towel. I will probably sell and rent out a room in the homes of my siblings. I might as well give them the money. If I spend a month at each of their homes, it will give me a chance to travel, visit, and not wear out my welcome. There are ten of us, and I have a ton of relatives that keep asking me to come visit.

I know I am going to have trouble getting them to let me pay, so I will have to find a way to make sure they get the money.

What's a "pork project"?

Edit: Nevermind i take it, it's a similar metaphor like "Pork barrel".

Every politicians' special pet interest projects that no one else really wants paid for. They take the opportunity to use bills like this one to sneak those in claiming they wouldn't vote for it otherwise.

So that's how we have $10 million for gender programs in Pakistan suddenly labeled under COVID relief, and that's just one thing. What else do you imagine is in 6,000 pages of paper for this one bill that only gives regular folks $600/person? That surely doesn't take 6,000 pages ...

Have you ever considered that landlords can be regular, hard-working and ambitious people as well?
My friend spent months finding an investor for her property. Then she spent a year putting labor into the property to make the living conditions really nice for her lessees. She intentionally picked a shady neighborhood thinking her effort and love would help improve the whole area.

She deserves to see the fruit of all that labor, don't you agree?

Giving with one hand and taking with the other really.

And as to $600, what that like 2/3rds of a months rent for the average Joe?

I'm thinking that's rather a poultry sum if im honest.

My landlord is a peach and a prince of a Man.

Could not ask for a nicer more understanding person.

That being said out of around the 7 private landlords i have had in my time, i would only call two of them proper human beings.

The rest have simply been at the exploitation or willing to do sfa including carrying out proper repairs and maintenance.

Luck of the draw in the private renting sector really.

Exactly and the cost of living will increase for everyone else and the very people complaining now will then start saying we need more affordable housing and can't figure out that housing is unaffordable because of their idiotic policies.

If you owe the government money, see how compassionate they will be. Unless you want to call being hit with usary levels of interest, and jail time as compassionate.
