ALL UNKNOWN HEIRS AND DEVISEES OF HAROLD R. CHRISTIAN, a deceased individual; Julian Castro, solely in his capacity as Secretary for UNITED STATES DEPARTMENT OF HOUSING AND URBAN DEVELOPMENT; NINE MILE RANCH HOMEOWNERS ASSOCIATION; DOES 1 through 10, inclusive, and ROES 1 through 10, inclusive,

Cause No.: 15-2-00443-5

SUMMONS – NOTICE OF EXECUTION – ORDER OF SALE FOR PROPERTY

To Unknown Heirs and Devisees of Harold R. Christian, Judgment Debtor:

An Order of Sale for Property Address: 212 Nine Mile Road, Oroville, WA 98844, has been issued in the above-caption case, directed to the Sheriff of Okanogan County, commanding the Sheriff as follows:

TO OKANOGAN COUNTY SHERIFF’S DEPARTMENT:

On May 3, 2016 Nationstar Mortgage LLC dba Champion Mortgage Company obtained an Order of entry of Judgment in the Superior Court of Washington, County of Okanogan, against defendants, All Unknown Heirs and Devisees of Harold R. Christian (“Heirs”), Julian Castro, solely in his capacity as Secretary for United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (“HUD”); Nine Mile Ranch Homeowners Association (“HOA” together with Heirs and HUD, collectively “Defendants”).

It is ordered, adjudged, and decreed that the land and premises located at 212 Nine Mile Road, Oroville WA 98844 and legally described as follows:

Lot 46, Nine Mile Ranch Division IV Amended, as per survey recorded in Volume “L” of Surveys, pages 43, 44, 45, 46, and 47, under Auditor’s File No. 840112, Okanogan County, Washington. Situate in the County of Okanogan, State of Washington. Assessor’s Parcel Number 4028210031, commonly referred to as: 212 Nine Mile Road, Oroville, WA 98844 referred to in the Default Judgment, be sold at public auction, as particularly set out in said Judgment.

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 Sheriff’s 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.

In the name of the State of Washington, you are hereby commanded and required to proceed to notice for sale and to sell the Subject Property, which is more particularly described in the Notice of Sale, and apply the proceeds of said sale as in said Judgment and Decree directed, and to make and file your report of such sale with the Clerk of the Court, and do all things according to the terms and requirements of said Judgment, and the provisions of Washington Law.
