More about the Forms Committee

The Forms Committee are elected professionals from the Oregon real estate community. These volunteers meet monthly to raise community concerns, suggest form improvements, and much more.

The Forms Committee is comprised of legal counsel, a representative from the escrow industry, and nine broker representatives from around the state. The committee meets monthly from February through October to review any statutory and case law bases for creating or revising its forms and to review forms change recommendations from its forms users. Throughout the year, the committee thoroughly reviews, discusses, and votes upon any proposed forms changes that brokers submit. The Forms Committee then sends its recommendations regarding new or changed forms to the OREF Board of Managers for final review and approval.

Any new or amended forms receiving final approval are then subjected to careful proofreading and beta testing before being provided to OREF’s forms hosting vendors for the upcoming calendar year release. OREF encourages its customers to propose constructive amendments to OREF forms. OREF will promptly acknowledge receipt of any proposals you have and will update you on the decision of the Forms Committee following the next committee meeting. OREF appreciates your input.
