Today, KGW aired an interview with Portland Defender’s managing attorney about the issue of “squatters” and whether squatters in Oregon have rights.

The bottom line is that squatters in Oregon do not have any special rights, although the reality of Oregon’s court processes mean that, perversely, it may actually take longer for a homeowner to remove a squatter through the court system, vs. removing a real tenant.
