Suggested Information to Verify (Buyer to do due diligence)

  • Gather information about current tenants and lease terms. Current tenants may be paying below market rent.

  • Verify who currently pays utilities. Many duplexes do not have separate water meters so the owner usually pay the water/sewer bill and the tenants pay all other utilities.

  • If the buyer is purchasing this as an owner occupied property, find out if the owner is willing to give notice to one of the tenants to vacate. This is usually a 90 day notice under Oregon Law.

  • Contact the owner or consult with a real estate professional if you wish to purchase this property.

  • Research on property management companies if you wish to have it professionally managed
