Installment consumer paper
(1) In addition to obligations permitted under ORS 708A.295 (Limitations on amount of obligations to Oregon commercial bank), an Oregon commercial bank may acquire obligations of a person, not to exceed 25 percent of the Oregon commercial banks capital, as an indorser or guarantor of negotiable or nonnegotiable installment consumer paper that carries a full or partial recourse indorsement or unconditional guarantee by the person transferring the obligation and conforms to rules prescribed by the Director of the Department of Consumer and Business Services.
(2) The 25 percent limitation of subsection (1) of this section does not apply to the extent the Oregon commercial bank relies primarily on the obligors on the consumer paper for the payment of the consumer paper, the Oregon commercial bank has reasonably adequate knowledge of the financial condition of the obligors on the consumer paper and an officer of the Oregon commercial bank certifies in writing that the creditworthiness of the obligors on the consumer paper has been evaluated. The certificate shall be retained as part of the records of the Oregon commercial bank. [1997 c.631 §150]
