2017 ORS 223.565¹
Procedure and conditions of redemption

(1) The owner, or legal representatives of the owner, or the successor in interest of the owner, or any person having a lien by judgment or mortgage, or owner of a tax lien, on any property sold by virtue of ORS 223.520 (Procedure in collecting delinquencies) may redeem it upon conditions provided in this section. Redemption of any real property sold for a delinquent final assessment or lien under the provisions of ORS 223.505 (Definitions for ORS 223.505 to 223.595) to 223.590 (Tender of purchase price in action to recover property) may be made by paying to the treasurer, at any time within one year from the date of the certificate of sale, the purchase price and 10 percent thereof as penalty, and interest on the purchase price at the rate of 10 percent per annum, from the date of the certificate. Where redemption is made by the holder of a tax lien the holder may have such redemption noted upon the record of the lien in like manner and with like effect as prescribed in this section. Such redemption shall discharge the property so sold from the effect of the sale and, if made by a lien creditor, the amount paid for the redemption shall thereafter be deemed a part of the judgment, mortgage or tax lien, as the case may be, and shall bear like interest, and may be enforced and collected as a part thereof.

(2) Anyone applying or seeking to redeem property sold under the provisions of ORS 223.505 (Definitions for ORS 223.505 to 223.595) to 223.590 (Tender of purchase price in action to recover property) must pay or offer to pay the sum necessary in lawful money of the United States.

(3) When an individual purchases real property at a foreclosure sale under ORS 223.505 (Definitions for ORS 223.505 to 223.595) to 223.590 (Tender of purchase price in action to recover property), if, with the approval of the local government, that purchaser incurs costs for maintaining or improving the property during the period allowed for redemption and if the property is subsequently redeemed, the treasurer may return all or part of the penalty paid by the person redeeming the property to the purchaser as provided by charter or ordinance of the local government. [Amended by 1977 c.403 §4; 1991 c.902 §65; 2003 c.576 §397; 2003 c.802 §42]

Notes of Decisions

Fact that ordinance, which charged fee to prop­erty owners taking advantage of privilege of making connec­tion to city wa­ter system, specified that pay­ment would be secured by liens which would be “enforced” in matter provided by this chapter did not, of itself, show that such charges were “assess­ments.” Montgomery Brothers v. City of Corvallis, 34 Or App 785, 580 P2d 190 (1978)

Circuit court has jurisdic­tion to determine merits of assess­ment, but cannot address whether assess­ment is subject to constitu­tional limits on prop­erty taxes. Martin v. City of Tigard, 14 OTR 517 (1999), aff’d 335 Or 444, 72 P3d 619 (2003)

State statutory pro­ce­dures for financing local improve­ments are not exclusive and do not displace consistent local pro­ce­dures. Baker v. City of Woodburn, 190 Or App 445, 79 P3d 901 (2003), Sup Ct review denied
