1. The common address and legal description of the real estate at issue:

3. The terms of sale were fair and not unconscionable;
4. The sale was conducted fairly and without fraud;
5. Justice was done by the sale;
6. All redemption and reinstatement periods have expired without redemption or reinstatement having been made; and
7. This Court obtained personal jurisdiction over the defendants.
IT IS THEREFORE ORDERED:
A. The U.S. Marshal's report of the sale is approved and the sale is confirmed;
B. The United States has not waived its right to subsequently administratively collect or reduce to judgment in a separate cause of action against the defendant(s) signing the promissory note secured by the mortgage foreclosed herein the resulting deficiency set forth above, even though no such deficiency judgment is sought in this foreclosure proceeding.
C. The U.S. Marshal is directed to issue a deed to the holder of the certificate of purchase, sufficient to convey title pursuant to 735 ILCS 5/l5-l509(a).
D. The holder of the certificate of purchase or deed issued pursuant to the Certificate of purchase shall be entitled to possession of the real estate at issue on the 31st day after entry of this Opinion.
E. 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.
(2) If any persons referenced in the above subparagraph remain on said premises on or after the 31st day following the approval of the judicial sale of this mortgaged real estate, the United States Marshal, without further court order, is directed and ordered as soon as practicable thereafter to use any and all necessary reasonable force to enter the above described mortgaged premises, including any outbuildings and vehicles on the property, and to remove all occupants who are present on the premises and who refuse to vacate immediately and voluntarily at the United States Marshal's direction; in addition any and all personal property left on the mortgaged premises by the defendant mortgagor and/or any and all other persons having left said property, is hereby declared forfeited to the United States. If the United States Marshal determines the above-described personal property to be without value or of di minimus value that would neither exceed nor equal the costs of notice, storage and sale, the United States Marshal may leave the personal property, at his discretion, on the premises for the purchaser of this real estate to claim, or dispose of, at will.
Upon taking possession and custody of the premises, and removing all occupants who are unauthorized to remain on the premise, the United States Marshal is then directed to remit possession and custody of the premises to the purchaser of said property at the sale judicially approved by this Court.
F. There is no just reason to delay enforcement of or appeal from this final order.
