Every year, Portland Tenants United conducts a survey of renters and provides a report to share with the community what issues tenants are facing and which issues we want to see addressed.
Portland Tenants United (PTU) conducted our second annual survey of Portland area renters throughout the month of January 2022. Nearly 200 people responded. Notably, 30% of all participants reported experiencing harassment from their landlord or manager in 2021. This report provides an overview of our findings on tenant harassment and constructive evictions, and illustrates the potential for the Rental Service Office (RSO) to fill a critical gap in offering support to tenants in crisis.
