Oregon Eviction Process

To initiate an eviction in Oregon or Forcible Entry and Detainer (FED), the landlord must serve the tenant with an official written notice that states the reason for the legal action.

This process is comprised of four more steps: filing a lawsuit if the tenant fails to comply, attending a court hearing, obtaining a writ of execution if the eviction is approved, and having law enforcement enforce the eviction. Landlords must follow specific procedures and timelines to avoid unlawful evictions, while tenants have rights to contest and protect themselves against unjust evictions, including the right to retrieve personal property post-eviction.
