They will also help in problem solving by coaching and guiding the less experienced landlords or property managers toward a solution. Mentors do not dispense legal information! Mentors are not a substitute for obtaining professional and competent legal assistance form an attorney! Here is how to obtain mentoring assistance: Contact our SOROA office by calling 541-842-7676 (leave a message if necessary. Message must include name and contact phone number). Our Association Coordinator will then select a mentoring person from the authorized list of mentors and have that person contact you. Mentors will do their best to help the requester to a solution. The requester bears the final responsibility for action and the results.
