Oregon Statutes - Chapter 90 - Residential Landlord and Tenant - Section 90.245 - Prohibited provisions in rental agreements; remedy.

(1) A rental agreement may not provide that the tenant:

(a) Agrees to waive or forgo rights or remedies under this chapter;

(b) Authorizes any person to confess judgment on a claim arising out of the rental agreement; or

(c) Agrees to the exculpation or limitation of any liability arising as a result of the other party’s willful misconduct or negligence or to indemnify the other party for that liability or costs connected therewith.

(2) A provision prohibited by subsection (1) of this section included in a rental agreement is unenforceable.
