Portland Requires Landlords To Use First-Come-First-Served System To Choose Tenants


In a 3-1 vote, the Portland City Council adopted a sweeping package of regulations Wednesday addressing how landlords screen their prospective tenants.

Passage of the ordinance marks a major accomplishment for Commissioner Chloe Eudaly, who has made renters’ rights her signature issue and spent close to two years working on the policy.

What’s called the “Fair Access In Renting” ordinance creates a first-come-first-served system for rental applications, prioritizes accessible units for people with disabilities, caps the income-to-rent ratio landlords can require of their tenants, and places some limits on the use of credit and criminal histories as criteria for denying a person’s rental application.
