Portlands new Landlord Registration Program is in effect

Portlands new Landlord Registration Program is in effect—fees are due by January 1, 2016 Following the City Council’s creation of the Housing Safety Office, Portland has launched a rental housing registration process, which requires landlords to register their rental units and pay an annual fee of $35 per unit beginning January 1, 2016.

Landlords can reduce this fee by implementing certain safety features listed at Chapter 6, Article VI of the City of Portland Code of Ordinances. Registration can be completed here.
