Principles of Oregon Real Estate Law, 2003 Cumulative Supplement

Principles of Oregon Real Estate Law explains the often complicated underpinnings of real estate law, including: the creation and characteristics of estates in real property; concurrent ownership; the requirements of the statute of frauds as well as exceptions to it; the scope of marketable title and how it arises; creating, enforcing and interpreting covenants, restrictions and easements; the elements included as fixtures in conveyances and Oregon’s recording laws and priorities that arise under them.

The 2003 cumulative supplement updates the 1995 edition with statutory changes, evolving case law and commentary from the experts. The supplement points out new paths over the age-old concept of property ownership, including discussions on the following:

Are restrictions and covenants regarding residential use strictly or liberally interpreted by Oregon courts?

What are the survivorship rules that apply when property is held by two or more owners?

How did the 2001 revision of UCC Article 9 affect the law regarding 'fixtures' and the priority of security interests in them?

Can the creditor of one spouse execute on that spouse’s interest in property held as a tenancy by the entirety?

Update your copy of Principles of Oregon Real Estate Law today! 2003 cumulative supplement: $85; 1995 book with 2003 cumulative supplement: $155. Also available on CD-ROM.
