Notes of Decisions

Where petitioner's registration with Builders Board had expired he no longer had duty to notify board of address change and notice of hearing provided pursuant to this section which did not reach petitioner was not "reasonable" under ORS 183.415. Marsh v. Builders Board, 54 Or App 242, 634 P2d 803 (1981)

Notes of Decisions

This is a remedial statute made for the protection of the building business and of people dealing with builders who might be irresponsible; it should be read as a whole and liberally construed to accomplish its purpose. Robinson v. Builders Bd., 20 Or App 340, 531 P2d 752 (1975)
