Title to all lands acquired by the State Board of Forestry under ORS 530.010 (State Board of Forestry authorized to acquire lands) shall be free and clear of all encumbrances except easements of rights of way and reservations or exceptions of gas, oil, coal, mineral and timber rights, unless the board determines other encumbrances will not unduly limit the management of the lands consistent with ORS 530.010 (State Board of Forestry authorized to acquire lands) to 530.170 (Disposition of revenues from lands acquired under former statute). All titles shall be approved by the Attorney General before conveyance is accepted. However, the Attorney General may approve title to lands proposed to be acquired from counties under the provisions of ORS 530.030 (Conveyance of county lands to state) or proposed to be acquired by donation or devise when, in the opinion of the Attorney General, existing defects of title are of formal nature and may be cured by suit to quiet title. In case of acquisition of lands with defective title, the Attorney General may institute suit to quiet title to such lands, and all costs in connection therewith shall be a proper charge against the funds of the board. All deeds, abstracts, title insurance policies, and other evidences of title to lands acquired under ORS 530.010 (State Board of Forestry authorized to acquire lands) to 530.040 (Exchange of forestland or timber) shall be deposited with the Secretary of State. All deeds shall promptly be recorded in the county in which the lands are situated. [Amended by 1955 c.421 §1; 2009 c.831 §9]
