The State of Oregon and the City of Portland have declared emergencies due to the spread of COVID-19. This is resulting in the disruption of some City services as some employees are unavailable or diverted to high priority services. This may cause longer than normal response times for Lien Review and other service requests.
City of Portland property owners with liens on their properties due to code enforcement violations can request a lien reduction review by the City of Portland’s Bureau of Development Services (BDS).
The BDS Lien Reduction Review Program applies to all property owners who have had code enforcement liens placed against their properties by the Bureau of Development Services for code violations (building, housing, nuisance, zoning, sign, etc.) The program allows for potential reduction of lien balances on closed enforcement cases based on criteria established by the City.
