Duty of Care
- Specific individuals in Oregon may owe a high duty of care to others by nature of their position (for professionals) or birth (for family members), including:
- Mortgage Brokers
- Real Estate Agents
If someone gets an ill, 65+ father to sign over the family home just to them and leave out other family members, that could be an instance of elder financial abuse. Still, it is legally tricky because the person could argue that the person did exactly what he wanted with his money.
