An Oregon property management agreement sets out the rules and conditions of a working relationship between a property manager and the owner who hired them. The agreement puts each party’s responsibilities into writing to ensure they understand their roles and are legally protected if things go wrong. The form specifies how long the working relationship will last, how the owner will pay the manager, what the manager’s duties are, and the circumstances that would cause the agreement to terminate early.
