ORS 12.280¹
Action based on practice of land surveying

Notwithstanding ORS 12.135 (Action for damages from construction, alteration or repair of improvement to real property) (1) or any other statute of limitation, an action against a person for the practice of land surveying, as defined in ORS 672.005 (Additional definitions), to recover damages for injury to a person, property or to any interest in property, including damages for delay or economic loss, regardless of legal theory, arising out of the survey of real property must be commenced within two years after the date the injury or damage is first discovered or in the exercise of reasonable care should have been discovered. In no event may an action arising out of a survey be commenced more than 10 years after the date on which any map prepared by the land surveyor is filed under the provisions of ORS 209.250 (Survey by registered land surveyor), or, if no map is filed, more than 10 years after the completion of work on the survey. [1995 c.310 §2]

Notes of Decisions

An ac­tion for per­sonal injuries caused by breach of implied warranty is clearly one for which "different limita­tion is prescribed by statute" under ORS 12.010 (Time of commencing actions) and thus is not governed by pro­vi­sions of this chapter.
