Here in Oregon the legislature recently passed measures  ending no cause evictions and instituting rent controls   Raising   rents now  requires a 90 day notice. Tenants use the service or companion dog  gambit to force their way in and not have to pay a deposit .The politicians created the  housing shortage and now are making the landlords the scapegoat .

How did politicians create a shortage?

How does a service dog get them out of the whole deposit? Wouldn't that just give them an exemption to a pet deposit? How does that let them "force their way in"?

Is a no-cause eviction the same as a lease terminating?

Politicians allowed banks to make loans to unqualified buyers.The banks then collateralized and  sold these worthless  loans .This created the real estate crash of 2007  (the great recession) which lasted  years. During those years very little housing was built.The result: a scarcity of housing and higher rents. Of course renters have truly  been hurt  . So who do the politicians blame? Of course  Oregon's governor and  her toadies  in the legislature   blow with the wind and punish  the  wicked people who build or invest in rental property.  Now here in Oregon we have rent controls. The result as always, will be higher rents and  run down  housing .

If you understand the concept of" supply and demand" you will understand why rents have increased .There is a shortage  of housing throughout the country. So rents go up.  Renters are unhappy  and want cheaper rent. Rent controls, a false solution  gains  votes for wily  politicians..  In the long run  the  controls create no new housing  but instead discourage it.The result :less investment in housing and continued scarcity. With competition removed some landlords profit  by cutting maintenance and services and the housing stock deteriorates . Desperate  landlords will bleed and abandon their holdings. Witness the history of rent controls in New York.Acres of empty buildings.  Rent controls are bad for society and a  way to create blight and slums.

Here  in Salem Oregon we have people sleeping on the street in the downtown area,Will high development  fees, rent controls  and absurd requirements create housing for these people ?  I doubt it.
