purchase price, without notice to any party or further order of the Court. The mortgagors shall
peaceably surrender possession of said property to said certificate holder immediately upon expiration
of the said 30-day period. In the event of default, an order of ejectment shall issue.

confirmation of sale, the person who conducted the sale (or the Court) shall execute a deed conveying
title to the holder of the certificate of sale. The deed shall identify the Court and the caption of the
case in which judgment was entered authorizing issuance of the deed. Signature and the recital in the
deed of the title or authority of the person signing the deed as grantor, of authority pursuant to this
judgment, and of the giving of the notices required by statute shall be proof of the facts recited and
of such authority to execute the deed. Such deed, however, shall not be construed to contain any
covenant on the part of the person executing it.
Delivery of the deed executed on the sale of the real estate, even if the purchaser or holder of
the certificate of sale is a party to the foreclosure, shall be enough to convey title. Such conveyance
shall be a complete bar to all claims by the following: (1) the parties to the foreclosure; and (2) any
non-record claimant that is given notice of the foreclosure as provided by statute.
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED, ADJUDGED, AND DECREED that if the money
arising from said sale shall be insufficient to pay sums due to the Government with interest after

jurisdiction over the parties and the subject matter of this cause for the purpose of enforcing this
Judgment. The United States Marshal shall report his actions at the premises to this Court at the
