Oregon Roommate Agreement


The Oregon roommate agreement is a document that outlines rules and responsibilities for individuals sharing a living space. It helps roommates establish house-wide rules and coordinates the tasks to be completed by each person, along with a timeline for their completion. This agreement is effective in reducing the chances of disputes and eliminates the need for uncomfortable conversations about issues such as cleanliness.

The process for completing a roommate agreement generally follows these steps:

  • The parties agree on a time and place to discuss all aspects of the agreement.
  • They sit down together and address each topic one by one, covering areas such as cleaning, utilities, and quiet hours, until the form is completed.
  • Each roommate reviews the form once more, ensuring that they agree on all points.
  • A digital or printed copy of the form is then distributed to each roommate for their records.
