Typically the answer is yes, the landlord can rent the other part of the home. If there are shared utilities, typically the landlord will pay for the utilities and raise the rent accordingly. However, I'd make sure the door between the two units locks and is fire rated...such as an exterior door.... more
Call DHS. They have monthly money available as well as low or no income housing. Do you have any income now? If none, you can try shelters that care for single parents with kids. There is one in Tigard. Im sorry about your situation. You are not alone, thats for sure. I know thats not much consolation. Good luck.... more
You may have to find a roommate situation with someone who is looking to share a home. Many such folks do not do credit checks and living in that kind of situation would allow you to save a lot of money, pay off your creditors and then move on. Just a thought.... more

I have a couple of names for you.
http://www.oakwood.com/cms/main-page-about-oakwood.html (503) 582-9229.
Execustay (503) 499-6625 or (206) 889-0866.
Relocation Coordinators (503) 684-5355.
These were the names in my book - I hope they're helpful to you.
Of course there are possibly options Craigslist.com, and with Ikea in town, you could furnish an apartment for very little, so if the executive stay places are too expensive, she might like to live in the Pearl District in a loft or apartment, which will feel more European, as you can walk everywhere, and I have resources for rentals there...
Are you in Portland Maine and she's coming to Portland OR?
Anything I can do to help, don't hesitate to contact me.
That might help but we are at about a 3% vacancy rate city wide and it can be tighter depending where you are looking. I heard of some real estate management companies charging a retainer fee to find you a place because they come and go quick. I am not much help but it is hard I know when I try and show out of town clients places since they want to rent for a year and watch the prices go up 15%. I hope you are not trying to rent with a pet since that almost eliminates all places. Good luck to you. Tom Inglesby, Broker, RE/MAX Equity Group... more
