ORS 18.868¹
Sheriff to whom writ is issued

(1) If a writ of execution directs a sheriff to sell real property or tangible personal property of a judgment debtor and deliver the proceeds to the court for application against amounts owing on a money award, the writ may be issued to the sheriff of any county in this state where property of the judgment debtor to be levied on is located.

(2) If the writ of execution directs the sheriff to sell or deliver possession of specific real or tangible personal property, the writ must be issued to the sheriff of the county where the property is located.

(3) If the writ of execution directs the sheriff to sell intangible personal property and deliver the proceeds to the court for application against amounts owing on a money award, the court administrator shall issue the writ to the sheriff for the county in which the court sits.

(4) More than one writ of execution may be issued at the same time to different sheriffs for the enforcement of a single judgment. If the writ or the instructions to the sheriff direct the sale of a single, contiguous parcel of real property that is located in more than one county, and the judgment creditor has recorded copies of the writ or abstracts of the writ under ORS 18.870 (Recording of writ) in each county that contains part of the property, the sheriff for any county in which part of the property is located may levy on and sell the entire property. If the sheriff levies on property under this subsection, the sheriff must record a copy of the notice of levy in the County Clerk Lien Record for any county not served by the sheriff.
