How to Evict a Tenant (4 steps)

1. Provide Notice to Tenant

In Oregon, it is required to let the tenant know of the landlord’s intention to seek eviction and to wait the specified time period to give the tenant a chance to move out or cure the issue. There are several types of notices, depending on the issue:

2. File Complaint and Summons with Circuit Court

Once the requisite time period has elapsed and the tenant has failed to respond to the notice provided by the landlord, the landlord may seek redress in the Circuit Court representing the county in which the property is located.

To begin an eviction case, the landlord must file a Residential Eviction Complaint and a Summons and pay a $88 filing fee and a trial fee, if any.[8] In addition, the landlord must provide copies of the notice they delivered to the tenant.

3. Serve Complaint and Summons on Tenant

Once it has been filed, the court clerk will give you a copy of the summons and complaint to serve on the tenant. The tenant must be served by the end of the day after the day the complaint was filed. The tenant will have the right to submit an Answer Form and defend themselves.

4. Attend Court Hearing

The court will set a date for a hearing. If the tenant fails to show up or the court finds in favor of the landlord, the court will issue a Judgment and the tenant will be obligated to move out.
