  20. NSF Payments: Should any payment made by or on behalf of any Tenant(s) be returned by the financial institution for insufficient funds, Owner/Agent may require that all subsequent payments be made in certified funds only (cashier’s check or money order), for the remainder of the tenancy.
     
  21. Non-Compliance Fees: Owner/Agent may charge noncompliance fees as listed on page 1 of this agreement for subsequent violations occurring within one year from issuance of written warning notice of a specific violation. Noncompliance fees for keeping an unauthorized pet capable of causing damage may be charged as early as 48 hours after effective date of written warning notice and for each additional 48-hour period during which the unauthorized pet remains on the premises.

Late fees and dishonored check fees are due immediately upon default by Tenant(s). Tenancy may be terminated as allowed by law for failure to pay outstanding fees.
     
  22. Carpet Cleaning: If Owner/Agent had carpets cleaned using specialized equipment, or had the carpets replaced before the Tenant(s) took possession, Owner/Agent may deduct the cost of carpet cleaning from the Tenant’s security deposit regardless of whether the Tenant(s) cleaned the carpets before the delivery of possession.
     
  23. Lease Enabling/Trespassing: Owner/Agent retains the power to exclude non-residents from the common areas of the property if they violate the rules of the complex. Owner/Agent retains control over the common areas of the premises for the purposes of enforcing state trespass laws and shall be the “person in charge.”
     
  24. Termination: Tenant(s) shall not terminate this agreement without giving 30 days’ written notice; failure shall make Tenant(s) liable for up to 30 days’ rent. Owner/Agent may terminate this tenancy within the first year, without stated cause, by giving Tenant(s) not less than 30, 60, or 90 days’ notice as required by law. The first year of tenancy includes all periods during which any of the Tenants have resided in the rental property for less than one year. After the first year of occupancy, Owner/Agent may only terminate the tenancy for cause, or with 90-days’ written notice (unless exempt as indicated below) for a Qualifying Landlord Reason: 1) Owner/Agent intends to demolish the unit or convert it to a use other than residential use within a reasonable time; 2) Owner/Agent intends to undertake repairs or renovations to the unit within a reasonable time and the unit is unsafe or unfit for occupancy, or will be unsafe or unfit for occupancy during repairs or renovations; 3) Owner/Agent intends for the property owner or a member of the Owner’s immediate family to occupy the unit as a primary residence, and the Owner does not own a comparable unit in the same building that is available for occupancy at the time the notice is delivered; 4) Owner is selling the property, and has accepted an offer to purchase the unit separately from any other unit from a person who intends in good faith to occupy the unit as their primary residence. (Owner/Agent must provide the notice and written evidence of the offer to purchase the unit to the tenant not more than 120 days after accepting the offer to purchase.) Landlords who own two units occupying the same tax lot where the landlord occupies one unit as their primary residence, may provide a minimum of 60-days’ written notice of termination for no-cause for that specific rental property, or with 30-days’ written notice, if the landlord has accepted an offer to purchase from a buyer who intends in good faith to occupy the tenant’s rental unit as their primary residence. (The landlord must provide the notice and written evidence of the offer to purchase the unit to the tenant not more than 120 days after accepting the offer to purchase.) Regardless of length of tenancy, proscribed notice periods may be longer in certain local jurisdictions or in subsidized housing. For a termination under this section to be valid at the time it is delivered to the tenant, Owner must pay the Tenant(s) the equivalent of one month’s periodic rent – unless exempt. Landlords with an ownership interest in four or fewer dwelling units are exempt from payment of relocation expense.
    Owner/Agent may also terminate this tenancy in the manner provided by law if Tenant(s) fails to pay rent and/or other charges, or fails to comply with any terms or conditions of this agreement, or fails to comply with any obligations under ORS Chapter 90. Owner/Agent accepting partial payment does not waive the right to terminate tenancy if the balance of rent is not paid as agreed in writing. Acceptance of deposit on last month’s rent does not constitute a waiver of Owner/Agent’s right to terminate for nonpayment of rent. Rent or other charges owed by Tenant(s) shall be deducted from Tenant’s security deposit after all Tenants vacate the premises. Tenant(s) must provide a single forwarding address for final accounting.
     
  25. Sale or Transfer of Premises: If the rented premises is sold or transferred during the tenancy, all terms of this agreement shall remain in full force and effect until further notice by Owner/Agent.
     
  26. Tenant(s) Jointly and Severally Liable: If the rental unit is occupied by more than one occupant it is agreed that each person will be responsible for the entire rent and all other charges until the account is paid in full. Any prepaid rents or deposits will not be applied until all Tenants legally vacate the premises.
     
  27. Application of Payments: Owner/Agent must apply payments received by tenant(s) in the following order: A) Outstanding rent from prior months; B) Rent for the current month; C) Utility or service charges; D) Late rent charges; E) Damage claims and any other fees or claims owed by the tenant. If the due date for rent payment or other payment falls on a Sunday or national holiday (New Year’s Day, President’s Day, Memorial Day, Fourth of July, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day), Tenant(s) shall be entitled to one additional day to tender payment without penalty.
     
  28. Legal and Collection Fees: Any funds due from Tenant(s) may be consigned to a Collection Agency, Small Claims Court or Circuit Court. Tenant(s) expressly authorizes Owner/Agent to collect any and all costs, fees, expenses, charges, and incurred interest associated with the attempt to collect any debt due under this agreement. Tenant’s financial obligation expressly includes the actual debt and all other costs, fees, expenses, and charges including charges related to collection activity of a Collection Agency. Specifically, this authorization includes charges in excess of the original debt. Interest on the debt to be charged at a rate of 10% per annum, compounded monthly.
     
  29. Unenforceable Provision: If any portion of this agreement should be ruled unenforceable for any reason, all other portions of the agreement shall remain in full force.
     
  30. Charges: Any charges imposed on a owner/agent by a utility or service provider or on behalf of a local government for one or more municipal services or for the general use of a public resource related to the dwelling unit, including fees assessed to support street maintenance or transportation improvements, transit, public safety and parks and open space, but not including real property or income taxes or business licenses or dwelling inspection fees, may be passed through to Tenant(s) as allowed by law.

  31. Co-signers: If this rental agreement is secured by a co-signer, Owner/Agent reserves the right to notify the Co-signer about any information related to the tenancy deemed necessary, but shall be under no obligation to do so.
