Oregon Statutes - Chapter 90 - Residential Landlord and Tenant - Section 90.147 - Delivery of possession.

For the purposes of this chapter, delivery of possession occurs:

(1) From the landlord to the tenant, when the landlord gives actual notice to the tenant that the tenant has the right under a rental agreement to occupy the dwelling unit to the exclusion of others. The right to occupy may be implied by actions such as the landlordís delivery of the keys to the dwelling unit; and

(2) From the tenant to the landlord at the termination of the tenancy, when:

(a) The tenant gives actual notice to the landlord that the tenant has relinquished any right to occupy the dwelling unit to the exclusion of others. Relinquishment of the right to occupy may be implied by actions such as the tenantís return of the keys to the dwelling unit;

(b) After the expiration date of an outstanding termination of tenancy notice or the end of a term tenancy, the landlord reasonably believes under all the circumstances that the tenant has relinquished or no longer claims the right to occupy the dwelling unit to the exclusion of others; or

(c) The landlord reasonably knows of the tenantís abandonment of the dwelling unit. [1995 c.559 §9; 1999 c.603 §8]
