Real Estate in Oregon

The state of Oregon has a rich history that includes exhilarating tales of the Wild West days. While the history of Oregon is exciting, it also taught the residents a lot of lessons on how to do business. In the early days of the state's history, there was a great deal of fraud committed during real estate transactions. The result is that today's Oregon real estate laws require that every aspect of a real estate transaction be captured in writing and agreed to by both parties. If both parties want there to be changes to the sales agreement, then those changes must be put into the agreement in writing as amendments, and agreed to by both parties using legal signatures.

The lenders of Oregon have also learned from the state's rough and tumble past, and that shows up in certain parts of real estate transactions as well. The state of Oregon does not require the buyer of a property to ever have title insurance to protect themselves in the event that something could occur involving the property or the deed. However, Oregon lenders do require title insurance for every real estate transaction and lenders will not approve any mortgage that is not protected by title insurance.
