The total amount due and owing on the Judgment through May 3, 2016, is $385,232.95 consisting of the following: the judgment amount of $380,604.05 principal and interest; $2,850.00 awarded for attorneys’ fees; $1,778.90 awarded for costs; Due to the nature of the loan, Plaintiff waives any post-judgment interest; pursuant to paragraph 2 of the Judgment, post-judgment amounts advanced for attorneys; fees, and costs for publication and Sheriffs fees of an unknown amount.

It is ordered, adjudged, and decreed that the Sheriff is hereby authorized to make the return within 60 days after issuance by the court. For purposes of the sale, the Order may be automatically extended for 30 days, pursuant to RCW 6.21.050.

Plaintiff agrees that no deficiency judgment shall be entered against Borrower and that the court will establish a zero month redemption period. The Subject Property has been abandoned for more than six months and Plaintiff reserves the right to establish a zero month redemption period. Pursuant to RCW 61 .12.093, if the court finds that the mortgagor or his successor in interest has abandoned said Property for six months or more, the purchaser at the Sheriffs sale shall take title in and to such Property free from all redemption rights as provided for in RCW 6.23 .010 et seq. upon confirmation of the Sheriffs sale by the court. Lack of occupancy by, or by authority of, the mortgagor or his successor in interest for a continuous period of six months or more prior to the date of the decree of foreclosure, coupled with failure to make payments upon the mortgage obligation within the said six month period, will be prima facie evidence of abandonment.
