(a) Cancel the lease contract as provided in ORS 72A.5050 (Cancellation and termination and effect of cancellation, termination, rescission or fraud on rights and remedies);

(b) Proceed respecting goods not identified to the lease contract as provided in ORS 72A.5240 (Lessor's right to identify goods to lease contract);

(c) Withhold delivery of the goods and take possession of goods previously delivered as provided in ORS 72A.5250 (Lessor's right to possession of goods);

(d) Stop delivery of the goods by any bailee as provided in ORS 72A.5260 (Lessor's stoppage of delivery in transit or otherwise);

(e) Dispose of the goods and recover damages as provided in ORS 72A.5270 (Lessor's rights to dispose of goods), retain the goods and recover damages as provided in ORS 72A.5280 (Lessor's damages for default), or in a proper case recover rent as provided in ORS 72A.5290 (Lessor's action for the rent); or

(3) If a lessee is otherwise in default under a lease contract, the lessor may exercise the rights and pursue the remedies provided in the lease contract, which may include a right to cancel the lease. In addition, unless otherwise provided in the lease contract:

(a) If the default substantially impairs the value of the lease contract to the lessor, the lessor may exercise the rights and pursue the remedies provided in subsection (1) or (2) of this section; or

(b) If the default does not substantially impair the value of the lease contract to the lessor, the lessor may recover as provided in subsection (2) of this section. [1989 c.676 §70; 1993 c.646 §15; 1995 c.79 §22]
