Text Search

Enter the text to search for and click Search to get a list of statutes containing the text you entered. Tips:
  • Multiple words will be searched as a phrase. Entering Property Tax will return statutes that contain the complete phrase Property Tax.
  • Logical Operators are allowed. Hunting and Fishing will return statutes that containing both hunting and fishing. Hunting or Fishing will return statutes that contain hunting, fishing, or both.
  • Wild cards(*) are allowed. Entering Approp* will return statutes that contain Appropriation, Appropriate, Appropriated, etc..
  • Punctuation can also be used as operators. + = and, , = or. Searching for phrases that have , and will result in error unless you enclose the entire phrase in quotes.
The Filter option allows you to narrow your search results to a specific Title or Chapter. Here is a tip for using the filter option.
  • Use a dash (-) as the last character of your filter to refine searches. For example the filter "1-1" returns sections in 1-1, 1-10, 1-11, 1-12, etc. The filter "1-1-" returns only sections in Chapter 1-1.

When any sale of real estate has been made by a mortgagee, trustee, or other person authorized to make the same at which the mortgagee, payee, or other holder of the obligation thereby secured becomes the purchaser and takes title, either directly or indirectly, before such mortgagee, payee, or other holder of the secured obligation as aforesaid, shall be entitled to any deficiency judgment against the mortgagor, trustor, or other maker of any such obligation whose property has been so purchased, he shall first establish to the satisfaction of the court in which such action for a deficiency judgment is pending that the property covered by such mortgage sold at foreclosure sale for its true market value or more at the time of such sale, and in adjudging any such deficiency the court in arriving at the amount of such judgment shall deduct from the amount of the mortgage indebtedness remaining unsatisfied after the sale of the mortgaged property the difference between the true market value of said property at the time of such sale and the amount for which it sold, if such amount was less than the true market value at the time of sale.
