Hi - my name is ***** ***** I'll be glad to assist. ORS 90.425(21) actually addresses this issue and outlines how to dispose of the property. Here's a link to the statute: http://www.oregonlaws.org/ors/90.425

Also, here's a very good link that summarizes the statute and outlines the steps, which basically requires the landlord to provide notice to any known heirs to recover the property, and if that doesn't occur, you can sell or dispose of the property (depending on the value of the items): http://www.oregonlandlordlaw.com/Abandoned-Property-Deceased-Tenant.htm
