    As you know the new law about Section 8 went into effect on July 1, 2014. BOLI (Oregon Bureau of Labor and Industry) is conducting workshops through the State of Oregon about the new law. In Salem the workshop is on November 18 from 10 am - 12 pm at 4001 Winema Place NE.

    On November 11, 2014, Christian Bryant (President of Coldwell Banker Mountain West Property Management and Board member of Salem RHA) was a guest on OPB-Radio talking about the landlord's perspective.

    I wanted to let you know that Oregon Housing and Community Services agency has now published the final version of the Housing Choice Landlord Guarantee Program rules.  Additionally, they have a nice toolkit for landlords that includes summary information about the program, as well as the forms you’ll need to file a claim with the program and to request information about whether a tenant is repaying their claim.  Of note, the request for information form states that the program will respond within two business days. 

     

    Rules: http://www.oregon.gov/ohcs/pdfs/public_notices/813-360-Administrative-Rule-Housing-Choice.pdf

     

    Toolkit: http://www.oregon.gov/ohcs/Pages/css_housing_choice_landlord_guarantee_assistance.aspx.

     

    Thanks,

    Remember that ORHA's Legislative Director, Jim Straub, worked hard on behalf of landlords to get this program working for landlords.
