A: An Oregon attorney could advise best, but your post remains open for two weeks. If you made your list and are able to work out the property losses amicably through some sort of compromise, that's often the most cost-effective and quickest route in such situations. If that isn't possible, small claims or discussing with an attorney could be options. If there's a friendship involved, that sometimes makes non-belligerent options more appealing. Good luck
