(1) Except as otherwise provided in subsections (2), (5), (6) and (7) of this section, a filed financing statement is effective for a period of five years after the date of filing.
(2) Except as otherwise provided in subsections (5), (6) and (7) of this section, an initial financing statement filed in connection with a public-finance transaction is effective for a period of 30 years after the date of filing if it indicates that it is filed in connection with a public-finance transaction.
(3) The effectiveness of a filed financing statement lapses on the expiration of the period of its effectiveness unless before the lapse a continuation statement is filed pursuant to subsection (4) of this section. Upon lapse, a financing statement ceases to be effective and any security interest or agricultural lien that was perfected by the financing statement becomes unperfected, unless the security interest is perfected otherwise. If the security interest or agricultural lien becomes unperfected upon lapse, it is deemed never to have been perfected as against a purchaser of the collateral for value.
(4) A continuation statement may be filed only within six months before the expiration of the five-year period specified in subsection (1) of this section or the 30-year period specified in subsection (2) of this section, whichever is applicable.
(5) Except as otherwise provided in ORS 79.0510, upon timely filing of a continuation statement, the effectiveness of the initial financing statement continues for a period of five years commencing on the day on which the financing statement would have become ineffective in the absence of the filing. Upon the expiration of the five-year period, the financing statement lapses in the same manner as provided in subsection (3) of this section, unless, before the lapse, another continuation statement is filed pursuant to subsection (4) of this section. Succeeding continuation statements may be filed in the same manner to continue the effectiveness of the initial financing statement.
(6) If a debtor is a transmitting utility and a filed financing statement so indicates, the financing statement is effective until a termination statement is filed.
(7) A record of a mortgage that is effective as a financing statement filed as a fixture filing under ORS 79.0502 (3) remains effective as a financing statement filed as a fixture filing until the mortgage is released or satisfied of record or its effectiveness otherwise terminates as to the real property.
(8) Not less than three months or more than six months before the expiration of any financing statement, effective financing statement as defined in ORS 80.100 or continuation thereof, the Secretary of State shall mail a renewal notice to the secured party or assignee of record, if any, at the address indicated on the financing statement, effective financing statement, assignment thereof or amendment thereto. The renewal notice shall include:
(a) The file number and expiration date of the financing statement or effective financing statement;
(b) The name of the debtor; and
(c) A statement that the financing statement or effective financing statement may be continued by filing a continuation statement or initial financing statement under section 191 or 192, chapter 445, Oregon Laws 2001.
