2017 ORS 115.135¹
Allowance and disallowance of claims

(1) A claim presented to the personal representative shall be considered allowed as presented unless within 60 days after the date of presentation of the claim as provided in ORS 115.005 (Presentation of claims) the personal representative mails or delivers a notice of disallowance of the claim in whole or in part to the claimant and, if any, the attorney of the claimant. The personal representative shall file in the estate proceeding the claim as presented and a copy of the notice of disallowance.

(2) A notice of disallowance of a claim shall state the reason for the disallowance and inform the claimant that the claim has been disallowed in whole or in part and, to the extent disallowed, will be barred unless the claimant proceeds as provided in ORS 115.145 (Procedure by claimant on disallowance of claim). Statement of a reason for disallowance under this subsection is not an admission by the personal representative and does not preclude the assertion of other defenses to the claim.

(3) The personal representative may rescind the previous allowance of an unpaid claim, if the claim was allowed because of error, misinformation or excusable neglect. Not less than 30 days before the date of the filing of the final account the personal representative shall give notice of rescission of previous allowance of a claim to the claimant and, if any, the attorney of the claimant in the same manner and containing the same information as a notice of disallowance.

(4) If allowed, the claim shall be paid only to the extent of the assets of the estate available for the payment of the claim pursuant to the priorities established in ORS 115.115 (Payment of claims) and 115.125 (Order of payment of expenses and claims). [1969 c.591 §153; 2017 c.169 §31]
