F. The Mortgagor (Homeowner) has the right to possess the foreclosed premises for 30 days after entry of an Order of Possession in accordance with Section 15-1701(c) of the Illinois Mortgage Foreclosure Law.
(1) In the event possession is withheld on the 31st day after entry of this Opinion, the defendant mortgagor and all persons claiming through the defendant mortgagor shall have removed themselves and their belongings and property from this real estate and shall peaceably surrender possession of said property to the purchaser of this property or the assignee of said purchaser.
