The questions on OREF 020 – Sellers Property Disclosures are straight from a statute – ORS 105.464 – so they can only be changed by bills passed through both houses of the Oregon Legislature and signed by the governor. If you would like to suggest changes, you can contact the senator or representative from your state district. You can get the names and contact information for your Oregon legislators by entering your address at this Oregonlive.com link or this ArcGIS link. They will want to know why the change is important enough to go through that process, so make your best case! As you might remember, the questions get changed from time to time – we have seen recent changes regarding seismic requirements and flood insurance – so your suggestion could become law.
