ORS 18.932¹
Postponement of sale
  • rules

(1) A sheriff may postpone an execution sale to a specified date if:

(a) The sheriff is unable to conduct the sale at the place and time specified in the notice of the sale;

(b) The sheriff considers it appropriate to postpone the sale for want of purchasers; or

(c) For other sufficient cause.

(2) A sheriff shall postpone an execution sale to a specified date upon the request of a judgment creditor. The sheriff may not postpone the execution sale to a date later than the final date for return on the writ of execution under ORS 18.872 (Return on writ of execution).

(3) If possible, the sheriff shall make a public announcement of a postponement at the time and place scheduled for the sale.

(4) An execution sale may be postponed more than one time under the provisions of this section. An execution sale may not be postponed beyond the date that a return on the writ is due. If the judgment creditor requests a postponement to a specified date, and the date is more than 60 days after the sheriff received the writ, the request for a postponement of the sale automatically operates as a request for an extension of the time for a return on the writ of execution under ORS 18.872 (Return on writ of execution) (1), and the return on the writ is due three business days after the date specified by the judgment creditor for the sale.

(5) The sheriff need not give additional notice of sale in the manner provided by ORS 18.918 (Person entitled to written notice of sale), 18.920 (Notice of sale of personal property), 18.922 (Expedited sale of perishable personal property) or 18.924 (Notice of sale of real property) by reason of a postponement. The State Court Administrator by rule may establish procedures for giving notice of a postponement by a posting on a website maintained under ORS 18.926 (Legal notices website). [2005 c.542 §26]
