Trade Regulation

ORS 646A.470
Sale or lease of returned assistive device


An assistive device returned by a consumer or dealer in this state, or by a consumer or dealer in another state under a similar law of that state, may not be sold or leased again in this state unless full disclosure of the reasons for return is made to the prospective buyer or lessee.


If a sale or lease is made in violation of subsection (1) of this section, a consumer who bought or took the lease of the assistive device shall have the rights of a consumer of a new device provided by ORS 646A.466 (Replacement or refund after attempt to repair), without regard to whether there is a nonconformity or to whether there has been a reasonable attempt to repair the device. The following paragraphs apply to a sale or lease under this section:


If the consumer chooses the refund option described in ORS 646A.466 (Replacement or refund after attempt to repair), there shall be no deduction from the full purchase price in calculating the refund under ORS 646A.466 (Replacement or refund after attempt to repair);


The rights described in this subsection run against the person who last sold or transferred the assistive device to any other person, whether or not the other person is a consumer, so long as the last person to sell or transfer the device had knowledge of the previous return of the device and did not provide the disclosure required by subsection (1) of this section; and


The rights described under this subsection must be declared and exercised by a consumer within two years after the consumer knows of the previous return and can identify the person against whom the rights run. [Formerly 646.492]
