Provider statement of estimated cost of improvements
(1) A provider shall give the buyer a statement of estimated costs for all improvements to be made under a contract between the buyer and the provider. The provider shall deliver the statement of estimated costs to the buyer before work commences on any of the improvements covered by the contract.
(2) If a provider fails to give a statement of estimated costs or knowingly fails to give a complete statement of estimated costs, a buyer who does not have actual notice of the total cost for an improvement and suffers an ascertainable loss due to the failure by the provider may bring an action to recover the greater of actual damages or $200.
(3) Except as provided in ORS 41.740 (Parol evidence rule), a statement of estimated costs given under this section is considered to contain all of the terms of the contract between the buyer and the provider. The contents of the statement of estimated costs are the only admissible evidence of the terms of the contract between the buyer and the provider. [2001 c.282 §4; 2005 c.41 §6]
