Attention to all homeowners and real estate agents in Hillsboro, Oregon — as of September 1st, 2021 the city of Hillsboro adopted the ordinance no. 6376 Home Energy Score as a requirement for all home sales. Anyone wanting to sell a home in the city of Portland is required to get a home energy score completed by a licensed Home Energy Assessment contractor. This new city wide ordinance matches the same legislation in Portland passed in 2017, and is intended to improve the existing housing stock and reduce residential energy consumption in Hillsboro. The score is an asset based assessment of the current conditions of the home.
The exceptions to the City ordinance are as follows:
Similarly to the City of Portland, Hillsboro will be enforcing this new city ordinance with penalties and fines. All violations will be subject to $500 citation and for every subsequent violation within a 90-day period, another $500.00 penalty will imposed. A written notice will be issued to the responsible party, where the violation is described and steps to become in compliance. The notice sent by the city of Hillsboro will provide 15-days to reach compliance before any fines are issued to the responsible party. To avoid all city of Hillsboro fees, homeowners, brokers, and real estate agents need to schedule a Home Energy Score with a Certified Energy Assessor.
