2011 ORS § 18.968¹
Setoff for rents, income and profits realized by certificate holder
  • certificate holders lien for crops and amounts expended to prevent waste

(1) A judgment debtor is entitled to a setoff against the amounts required to redeem property sold at an execution sale for all rents, income and profits realized by the certificate holder from the property.

(2) If the real property sold at an execution sale is farmland, the certificate holder has a lien on the first crops sown or grown after the sale and for all sums reasonably expended by the certificate holder in plowing, cultivating or seeding the property. The lien of the certificate holder is superior to all other liens except the liens provided by law for payment of wages for work in cultivating the land or harvesting the crops grown on the property. If the real property is not farmland, the certificate holder has a lien on the profits accruing from the property during the period that the certificate holder held the land for sums necessarily expended by the certificate holder to prevent waste.
