Q. I was locked out of my home by my landlord in Florence for 6 weeks now I'm living in my car and it's awful help!
A: Without more facts, seeing a copy of your lease agreement, and understanding more about your situation it is difficult to determine if you have a claim for monetary damages against your landlord for ouster. If you have not spoken with a local landlord tenant attorney about your potential claim of ouster against your landlord, you should do so. If you need assistant if finding housing you can call or contact 2-1-1 for your county or CAC for your county.
Q. My HOA is placing a large assessment on my home, and will not show me where my money was spent
A: There is no question for any attorney to answer on this platform.
Q. Can a landlord evict a tenant for "repairs due to the house being unsafe until finished" even when it's safe?
A: Short answer to your question is yes. Your landlord can serve a tenant who has a month to month tenancy with a notice of termination with the reason that your landlord intends to undertake repairs or renovations to the dwelling unit within a reasonable time and the premises is unsafe or unfit for occupancy; or the dwelling unit will be unsafe or unfit for occupancy during the repairs or renovations. The notice must give 90 days plus 3 days for first class mailing. However, if you believe that the notice or repairs or renovations do not meet the requirements as stated with Oregon law, you should consult with a local landlord attorney to discuss your potential options if any.

Good luck.
