Tualatin Municipal Code Chapter 6, Section 13 (TMC 6-13) establishes Rental Housing Maintenance Standards which provide minimum criteria for residential rental properties in an effort to safeguard the health, safety, and welfare of the owners, occupants, users of residential rental buildings and neighbors to these properties. The code is intended to supplement the habitability standards of the Oregon Residential Landlord and Tenant Act, ORS 90.100.
Every person who owns or operates a residential rental unit within the Tualatin city limits must first obtain a Rental Housing License. The annual rental license fee of $10.00 per dwelling unit applies to all buildings or portions of buildings that are legally used for human habitation and are covered by a rental agreement. Please review the full code for more details on license exemptions, fees, fines and the complaint process. As a rental property owner or manager you must also provide a copy of the TMC 6-13 to each rental unit.
