Terms and Conditions

The landlord is an independent contractor and not an agent of Oregon Housing and Community Services. The landlord agrees to rent/lease a residence to the tenant in accordance with the Landlord/Tenant Agreement for a period of at least 12 months from the date the agreement begins, providing tenant remains in compliance with the Landlord/Tenant Agreement; however, a month-to-month rental agreement is acceptable. Signing this form does not waive any legal rights afforded to the landlord under ORS 90; however, no-cause notices within the first 12 months of residency may impact the landlord’s request for this program’s assistance. The guarantee is only valid for damages that occurred within the first 12 months of the tenancy. The tenant must have vacated or been evicted from the residence within this 12-month period for the landlord to be able to request program assistance.

The guarantee is subject to available funding at the time of the request and is limited to $5,000 in total for all damages per tenancy. The guarantee covers only those costs allowable by the program and that exceed the security deposit.

The landlord agrees to notify the program provider if the tenant vacates or is evicted from the residence within the first 12 months of the tenancy, even if no assistance is requested.

The landlord agrees to submit a request for guarantee funds, with all required documentation if damages exceed the security deposit, to the program provider within 30 calendar days of the date when the tenant vacates the residence or is evicted for non-compliance of the Landlord/Tenant Agreement.

The landlord agrees not to recoup any costs paid by the program from the tenant or from the Housing Choice Landlord Guarantee Program, or any other third party, such as insurance. If a judgment has already been filed against the tenant, the landlord will file a satisfaction of judgment with 30 calendar days of receipt of payment and send a copy of such satisfaction to OHCS.

The landlord agrees to comply with all laws, regulations, and guidelines under the program, including, but not limited to program specific requirements, public policy for protecting civil rights, government-wide administrative mandates affecting the landlord’s accounting and record-keeping systems, and any rules, regulations or guidelines imposed by the program provider.

The landlord agrees to program provider’s and OHCS’ monitoring rights and responsibilities and the methods used by the program provider and OHCS for monitoring.

The landlord agrees to the non-revocable rights to inspect the residence identified in the agreement by the program provider or OHCS upon reasonable notice, for the purposes of monitoring and/or the verification of expenses requested in an application for assistance.

Termination of the agreement may occur upon such a directive by the program provider or by OHCS through the program provider. OHCS shall not be liable to any of the parties of the agreement or to other persons for directing that such agreement be terminated.
