More about the Forms Committee

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

The Forms Committee comprises legal counsel, representatives from the title industry, and brokers from around the state. The committee meets monthly to review statutory and case law changes for creating or revising forms and review form change recommendations from OREF subscribers. The committee thoroughly reviews, discusses, and votes upon any proposed form change suggestions received throughout the year. The Forms Committee then sends its new or changed forms recommendations to the OREF Board of Managers for final review and approval.

Any new or amended forms receiving final approval are subjected to careful proofreading and formatting before being provided to OREF’s forms hosting providers for release. OREF encourages its subscribers 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 meeting. OREF appreciates your input.
