ORS 105.151
Enforcement of judgment of restitution

  • notice of restitution


If the court renders judgment for restitution of the premises to the plaintiff, the plaintiff may only enforce that judgment in the following manner:


Issuance by the clerk of the court and service upon the defendant of a notice of restitution that shall give the defendant four days to move out of the premises, including removal of all personal property; and


After the expiration of the four-day period provided in the notice of restitution, issuance by the clerk of the court and service by the sheriff upon the defendant of a writ of execution of judgment of restitution, directing the sheriff to enforce the judgment by removing the defendant and by returning possession of the premises to the plaintiff, along with an eviction trespass notice from the sheriff.


Following entry of judgment for restitution of the premises in favor of a plaintiff, or any date for possession as specified in the judgment, whichever is later, the plaintiff may request that the clerk of the court in which the judgment is entered issue a notice of restitution. The notice of restitution shall order the defendant to move out of the premises, including removing all personal property, in no less than four days. The plaintiff may direct the clerk to extend the notice period beyond four days. Following payment of any required fees, the clerk shall issue the notice.


This section does not prevent a landlord in a tenancy to which ORS chapter 90 does not apply from exercising a right of entry provided by law and described in ORS 105.105 (Entry to be lawful and peaceable only) in order to recover possession of the premises, provided that the right of entry is stated in the rental agreement between the parties.
