Augusto Beato, CEO of Portland SEO, hailed the decision requiring Portland landlords to pay renters' moving costs if they are evicted without cause or a rent increase of over 10 percent. To learn more about Portland SEO, click here www.portlandseo.net.

Beato agreed with the sentiment that housing cannot be treated like any other commodity and that renters shouldn't have to worry about facing a massive rent hike.

The program, a brainchild of Commissioner Chloe Eudaly, is designed to address Portland's escalating housing and homelessness crisis, in addition to other steps taken by the city council. It had been used on a trial basis for a year before Portland commissioners made it permanent, and included a blanket exemption for landlords that own only one rental unit.

The permanent program removes that all-encompassing exemption but adds a laundry list of new ones that will allow some landlords with a single unit and other landlords meeting certain conditions to avoid paying tenants' relocation costs.

Wednesday's vote comes after commissioners heard hours of testimony on the program last week. During that testimony, supporters said the program has helped tenants avoid big rent hikes and costly moves, while some landlords pushed back against the rules as hampering their ability to issue a no-cause eviction against bad tenants.

Councilors' re-approval of the program also included language to establish a "rental registration system" through which the city will track landlords who seek an exemption from the moving-assistance rules. Landlords will also have to report when they issue a no-cause eviction or raise the rent more than 10 percent.
