ORS 18.870¹
Recording of writ

Upon delivery of a writ of execution to the sheriff of any county, the judgment creditor must record a copy of the writ certified to be true by the court administrator or an abstract of the writ in the County Clerk Lien Record for the county if the writ of execution or the accompanying instructions to the sheriff require the sale of real property. A legal description of the real property must be included in, or attached to, the copy of the writ or the abstract. The recording of the writ or abstract in any county in which a judgment lien does not exist under ORS 18.150 (Judgment liens in circuit courts) or 18.152 (Establishing judgment liens in other counties), or in a county in which a notice of pendency under ORS 93.740 (Notice of lis pendens) has not been previously recorded for the property to be sold, has the same effect as recording a notice of pendency under ORS 93.740 (Notice of lis pendens).
