ORS 127.015¹
Power of attorney not revoked until death or other event known

(1) The death of a principal who has executed a power of attorney in writing, or the occurrence of any other event that would otherwise terminate the authority of the agent, does not revoke or terminate the authority of an agent who, without actual knowledge of the death of the principal or other event, acts in good faith under the power of attorney. Any action so taken, unless otherwise invalid or unenforceable, binds the principal and heirs, devisees and personal representatives of the principal.

(2) An affidavit executed by an agent that states that the agent did not have, at the time of doing an act under the power of attorney, actual knowledge of the revocation or termination of the power of attorney by death or other event, is, in the absence of fraud, conclusive proof of the nonrevocation or nontermination of the power at that time. If the exercise of the power requires execution and delivery of any instrument that is recordable, the affidavit may also be recorded.

(3) This section does not alter or affect any provision for revocation or termination contained in the power of attorney. [Formerly 126.413; 2009 c.46 §3]
