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. If you are not a member, but would like to join the RELU section, please click here.

The next luncheon CLE will be on Wednesday, October 26, 2022, starting at noon, at the Royal Sonesta in downtown Portland Downtown (fka The Hotel Monaco), at 506 SW Washington Street, Portland, OR 97204.

For one general CLE, Bryan E. Powell, Shareholder, Lane Powell PC and Dustin R. Klinger, Partner, Thede Culpepper LLP will discuss the Updated RELU Model Real Estate Loan Opinion and Report.

The report is the first Report on Legal Opinions from RELU since 2004, and includes a new illustrative form of Opinion Letter, Borrower’s Certificate, and Proforma Action Authorizing Loan for Oregon real estate secured transactions.
