Welcome to the website of the Real Estate and Land Use Section, one of the largest and most active sections of the Oregon State Bar. RELU members are attorneys who practice across a diverse spectrum of real estate, property, and land use matters. The section executive committee meets monthly to oversee the services provided to members, including publishing the RELU Digest, sponsoring CLEs on real estate and land use issues, monitoring legislation, proposing law improvements, and providing e-mail notices on topics of interest to members. The RELU website offers links and other resources of use to the practitioner and the public, and is a central portal for real estate and land use information.

Effective February 1, 2022, LUBA is temporarily amending some of its administrative rules. These amendments apply to proceedings commenced both before and after February 1, 2022. These amendments eliminate in-person filing, address filing via commercial delivery service, and reduce the number of copies of briefs that must be filed with LUBA. Below is a link to its website, which contains a statement of need and justification, as required by ORS 183.335(5), as well as the text of the temporary rule amendments:


Please review these amendments before filing any documents with LUBA. Please contact LUBA with any questions at [email protected]. Please include “Temporary Rule Amendments” in the subject line.
