  • miscellaneous provisions of contract


Except as provided in ORS 20.082 (Attorney fees for small contract claims), the holder of any retail installment contract or retail charge agreement may not collect any delinquency or collection charges, including any attorney’s fee and court costs and disbursements, unless the contract or charge agreement so provides. In such cases, the charges shall be reasonable, and no attorney’s fee may be recovered unless the contract or charge agreement is referred for collection to an attorney not a salaried employee of the holder.


The contract or charge agreement may contain other provisions not inconsistent with the purposes of ORS 83.010 (Definitions for ORS 83.010 to 83.190) to 83.190 (Civil penalties), including but not limited to provisions relating to refinancing, transfer of the buyer’s equity, construction permits and title reports.
