Mendell Gosnell - Wednesday, March 22, 2017

What value does a property management company deliver?

The best way to get to where you want is to first know “where” that is.  Then it is just a matter of setting your internal GPS, charting the course and setting sail.  By that of course I mean setting goals or objectives.  And we have all heard the old cliché…until it is written down it is not a goal it is just a dream.  Well, I am a big advocate of writing down your goals.  Also,... read more >>

Mendell Gosnell - Sunday, September 25, 2016

What are habitability issues?

The term habitability in regards to rental property has to do with the livability of a house or apartment.  One of the laws that govern real estate that is rented out to a tenant is referred to as Landlord/Tenant law.  Many of these rules or statutes are found in the Oregon Revised Statutes chapter 90 (ORS 90).  In particular ORS 90.320(1) states that, “A Landlord shall at all times during the tenancy maintain the dwelling unit in a habitable condition.”  The list ... read more >>
