2017 ORS 112.586¹
Exceptions

(1) The survivorship rules established under ORS 112.570 (Definitions for ORS 112.570 to 112.590) to 112.590 (Protection of bona fide purchasers) do not apply in any situation in which application would result in escheat of an intestate estate to the state.

(2) The survivorship rules established under ORS 112.570 (Definitions for ORS 112.570 to 112.590) to 112.590 (Protection of bona fide purchasers) do not apply if a governing instrument contains language that specifically addresses the possibility of simultaneous deaths or deaths in a common disaster, and the language of the instrument is controlling under the circumstances of the deaths.

(3) The survivorship rules established under ORS 112.570 (Definitions for ORS 112.570 to 112.590) to 112.590 (Protection of bona fide purchasers) do not apply if a governing instrument expressly provides that a person is not required to survive the death of another person or to survive another event by any specified period.

(4) The survivorship rules established under ORS 112.570 (Definitions for ORS 112.570 to 112.590) to 112.590 (Protection of bona fide purchasers) do not apply if the governing instrument expressly requires the person to survive the death of another person or to survive another event for a specified period of time other than provided under the survivorship rules established under ORS 112.570 (Definitions for ORS 112.570 to 112.590) to 112.590 (Protection of bona fide purchasers). If the governing instrument so provides, survival of the death of the other person or survival of the other event by at least the specified amount of time must be established by clear and convincing evidence.

(5) The survivorship rules established under ORS 112.570 (Definitions for ORS 112.570 to 112.590) to 112.590 (Protection of bona fide purchasers) do not apply if application of those rules would cause a nonvested property interest or a power of appointment to be invalid under ORS 105.950 (Statutory rule against perpetuities) (1)(a), (2)(a) or (3)(a). In cases subject to this subsection, survival of the death of the other person or survival of the other event must still be established by clear and convincing evidence.

(6) The survivorship rules established under ORS 112.570 (Definitions for ORS 112.570 to 112.590) to 112.590 (Protection of bona fide purchasers) do not apply in cases in which there are multiple governing instruments and application of the rules to the governing instruments would result in an unintended failure or duplication of a disposition. In cases subject to this subsection, survival of the death of the other person or survival of the other event must still be established by clear and convincing evidence. [1999 c.131 §6]
