Beaverton extends renter eviction protections to 90 days
The ordinance was passed unanimously by the City Council under the city's new expedited process.

Beaverton tenants will have another 30 days of eviction protection following an ordinance adopted by the Beaverton City Council on Tuesday, Oct. 5.
The resolution, passed unanimously, adds an additional 30 days to the 60-day eviction protection law signed by Gov. Kate Brown in June.
Both Multnomah County and Washington County have already extended eviction protections to 90 days. Hillsboro passed a similar ordinance.
In order to stay protected from eviction for nonpayment of rent for an additional 90 days, tenants should show their landlords proof that they applied for rental assistance.
These new ordinances come as many local agencies report a backlog in rental assistance applications. The average time for an application to be processed is approximately 65 days, surpassing the allotted amount under state law.
