- Eviction Moratorium Protects Renters Through December 31 Governor Kate Brown issued a new Executive Order ensuring that Oregon renters are protected from eviction until December 31, 2020. Landlords cannot evict tenants for nonpayment during this time. Landlords also cannot use most kinds of no-cause notices until the end of the moratorium. This information is changing very quickly. More information about housing issues related to the COVID19 outbreak is available at OregonRentersRights.org and at oregonlawhelp.org/classroom/publichealth-and-coronavirus-covid-19/housing-protections.
