This year’s spring forum explores a variety of timely issues for real estate and land use practitioners. With more than 40 percent of Oregonians renting their homes, hear the landlord and tenant perspectives about the rental housing crisis of large rent increases and low vacancy rates. Learn the differences between lots, parcels, and legal lots and the importance of whether the property was legally created. Receive an update on prescriptive easements over existing roadways and the Oregon Supreme Court’s decision in Wels v. Hippe. Explore the history and development of Oregon’s inclusionary zoning program and how the City of Portland program is working. Discover the latest development in special flood hazard areas, and examine the tensions between private interest and public policy to enforce private agreements restricting development that encourages infill. The ethics session covers what you might not know about attorney-client privilege, work product doctrine, and joint defense doctrine in Oregon.
Cosponsored by the Real Estate and Land Use Section.
