Notes of Decisions

Where peti­tioner’s registra­tion with Builders Board had expired he no longer had duty to notify board of address change and notice of hearing provided pursuant to this sec­tion which did not reach peti­tioner was not “reasonable” under ORS 183.415 (Notice of right to hearing). Marsh v. Builders Board, 54 Or App 242, 634 P2d 803 (1981)

Notes of Decisions

This is a remedial statute made for the protec­tion of the building business and of people dealing with builders who might be irresponsible; it should be read as a whole and liberally construed to accomplish its purpose. Robinson v. Builders Bd., 20 Or App 340, 531 P2d 752 (1975)
