On August 12, Tonkon Torp attorney Kyle Grant was a featured speaker at the 2022 Annual Summer Conference hosted by the Oregon State Bar Real Estate and Land Use Section. Kyle presented a recap of residential and commercial real estate laws passed during the 2022 Oregon legislative session and provided an update on bills passed in 2021.
During his talk, Kyle gave an in-depth review of Senate Bill 1536, one of the most substantive bills of the session for the real estate industry. The law, Portable Cooling Devices in Residences, was passed in response to the record-breaking heat wave of 2021. It made amendments to the Oregon Residential Landlord Tenant Act and regulates leased spaces as well as planned community and condominium associations. Kyle also looked at HB 4103, which allows for an increase in penalties for unlicensed broker activities, and outlined the land use implications of HB 4016, which extended the Marijuana Moratoria.
