Linn-Benton RHA

Linn-Benton Rental Housing Association is a membership based, non-profit organization of landlords. Our members own or manage properties in Albany, Corvallis, Lebanon, Sweet Home, Philomath and other communities in the Central Willamette Valley.

We are a local organization dedicated to helping our members from the private rental owners to the larger property management companies; through our educational meetings, seminars, and newsletters. Our members can share problems, solutions, and ideas with other landlords to ultimately help all of us become better and more profitable landlords.

We are a member of the Oregon Rental Housing Association (ORHA) which allows our membership to be part of a much larger and more powerful lobbying group dedicated to passing fair and balanced Landlord/Tenant Laws and legislation.

We invite you to check out our website, look at the benefits LBRHA offers rental owners, and see how we can help you prosper to the fullest from your rental investments.

Oregon’s Office of Economic Analysis has decreased the permissible rent increase for 2021. State law sets the permissible rent increase at 7% plus the western region CPI. CPI went down from 2.9% to 2.2 %. This makes the allowable statewide rent increase cap 9.2% for 2021.


SALEM, Ore. - The Oregon Department of Administrative Services announces the annual maximum rent increase allowed by statute for calendar year 2021, under the terms of a new state law. The DAS Office of Economic Analysis has calculated the maximum percentage as 9.2.%.

Following the passage of Senate Bill 608 in the 2019 legislative session, Oregon law requires DAS to calculate and post to its website, by Sept. 30 of each year, the maximum annual rent increase percentage allowed by statute for the following calendar year.

Per statute, OEA calculates this amount as 7% plus the Consumer Price Index for All Urban Consumers, West Region (All Items), as most recently published by the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
