PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - Portland residents will be given more notice before certain rent increases or evictions under a new rule approved by the City Council.

The Oregonian reports (https://is.gd/szgUb7 ) that the rules take effect Friday. They require landlords to give 90 days’ notice before no-cause evictions or rent increases of 5 percent or more.

The Council approved the regulations a month ago, citing soaring rents, low vacancy rates and waves of evictions in Portland’s rental market.

Before the change, landlords only had to give 30 days’ notice.

The new rules apply to tenants who rent month to month unless they live in the same home as the property owner. Those tenants will get 30 days’ notice if they’ve lived there under a year and 60 days if they’ve been there longer.
