L.1995,c.244,s.10.
 
2A:50-63.Optional foreclosure procedure
11. a.  An optional foreclosure procedure without sale for the disposition of a foreclosed premises is hereby established pursuant to subsection b. of this section, wherein a lender may elect to proceed according to the provisions of this act and R.4:64-1(d) of the Rules Governing the Courts of the State of New Jersey.

b. Use of the optional procedure without sale, as provided in this section, shall be permitted only when:

(1) the debtor has abandoned the property which is the subject of the residential mortgage;

(2) the debtor has voluntarily surrendered the property which is the subject of the residential mortgage by signing a deed in lieu of foreclosure in favor of the lender; or

(3) there is no equity in the property which is the subject of the residential mortgage, as defined in subsection e. of this section.

c. Pursuant to paragraph (1) of subsection b. of this section, and for purposes of this section only, abandonment of the property subject to the residential mortgage shall be established by an affidavit or certification from an individual having personal knowledge of the contents thereof, setting forth the specific facts upon which that conclusion is based.  The affidavit or certification shall be submitted to the office or the court at the same time that the lender applies to the office or the court for the order fixing the amount, time and place for redemption.

d. Pursuant to paragraph (2) of subsection b. of this section and for purposes of this section only, if the lender receives a deed in lieu of foreclosure, the conveyance shall be effective only if the deed clearly and conspicuously provides: that the debtor may, without penalty, rescind the conveyance within seven days, excluding Saturdays, Sundays and legal holidays; and that such recision is effective upon delivery of a written notice to the lender or its agent or upon mailing of such notice to the lender or its agent by certified or registered mail, return receipt requested.

e. (1)  For purposes of paragraph (3) of subsection b. of this section, a property subject to a residential mortgage shall be deemed to have no equity if the total unpaid balance of all liens and encumbrances against the property, including mortgages, tax liens and judgments actually against the property (not including similar name judgments), and any other lien, is equal to or greater than 92 percent of the fair market value of the property.  An affidavit setting forth with specificity the fair market value of the property, the unpaid balance of the obligation, including all mortgages and liens and the method by which the lender determined that the property has no equity, shall be submitted to the office or the court at the time the lender applies for the order fixing the amount, time and place for redemption.

(2)If a lender proceeds with the optional procedure under this subsection, and if the debtor has not objected and requested a public sale pursuant to this section, when the foreclosed property is resold by the lender following judgment and provided the resale price received by the lender is in excess of the amount necessary to repay the debt, interest and reasonable costs of the lender, and all carrying charges, including, but not limited to, the reasonable costs of maintenance and resale, the lender shall deposit any such excess in accordance with R.4:57 et seq. of the Rules Governing the Courts of the State of New Jersey.

(3) Upon deposit of any such excess with the Superior Court, the lender shall notify the debtor and any lien holder who held a lien junior to the lender and whose lien was lost in whole or in part as a result of the foreclosure.  Such notification shall be by certified mail, return receipt requested, to the last known address of the debtor and such lien holders.  The debtor and the lien holders shall then have six months to make an application to the Superior Court, in the form of an application for surplus funds, upon appropriate notice to all other parties in interest, to seek an order for turnover of the excess funds.  Failure of a lender to comply with the provisions of paragraphs (2) and (3) of this subsection e. shall not affect title to the foreclosed property.

f. (1)  In accordance with the provisions of R.4:64-1(d) of the Rules Governing the Courts of the State of New Jersey, and subject to compliance with the provisions of this act, a lender may elect to proceed with the optional procedure by filing an affidavit or certification with the office or the court.

(2) The affidavit or certification shall set forth the facts which the lender alleges show that it is entitled to proceed under one or more paragraphs of subsection b. of this section and shall be supported by the proofs required by this section and such other proofs as may be required by the office or the court.

g.In accordance with the provisions of R.4:64-1(d) of the Rules Governing the Courts of the State of New Jersey, and subject to compliance with the provisions of this act, the office or the court may enter an order fixing the amount, time, and place for redemption, which shall be not less than 45 days nor more than 60 days after the date of the order.  The office or the court may grant an extension of time for good cause shown.  The order shall provide that:

(1) the redeeming defendant pay to the plaintiff's attorney the amount fixed by the office or the court for redemption, together with interest to the date of redemption, plus all court costs;

(2) redemption shall be by cash, cashier's check or certified check and made at the office of the plaintiff's attorney, if such office is located in the county where the property is situated, or at such other place as designated by the office or the court, between the hours of 9:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. of the date set by the office or the court in the order; and

(3) in the absence of redemption, the defendants shall stand absolutely debarred and foreclosed from all equity of redemption.

h. (1)  The order for redemption or notice thereof shall be mailed to each defendant's last known address and, if different, also to the address of the property being foreclosed.  The order for redemption or notice thereof shall be sent by ordinary mail and certified mail, return receipt requested, within 20 days after the date the order is entered, except that, as to defendants whose addresses are unknown and who were served by publication, no further publication of the order for redemption or notice thereof need be made.

(2) The notice shall:

(a) inform the defendants that the plaintiff is proceeding under an optional procedure authorized by section 11 of this act and set out the steps of the optional procedure;

(b) inform all defendants of the terms and conditions under which a defendant may request a public sale of the mortgaged premises pursuant to subsection i. of this section; and

(c) clearly state that no request for a public sale made after 30 days from the date of service will be granted, except for good cause shown.

i. In any matter in which the office or the court has issued an order for redemption and the lender is permitted to proceed by the optional procedure, a defendant who wishes to object to the optional procedure and request a public sale with respect to the mortgaged premises being foreclosed, shall submit to the office or the court a written request for a public sale within 30 days of the date the order or notice thereof is served.  If a defendant requests a public sale within the required time period, and subject to compliance with the provisions of this act, the office or court shall enter a judgment of foreclosure which provides for a public sale of the premises in accordance with applicable law.  Any such defendant who requests a public sale, other than a natural person who is the owner or a voluntary transferee from that owner, shall be required to post a cash deposit or bond prior to the date fixed for redemption.  This cash deposit or bond shall be in an amount which is 10% of the amount found due in the order fixing the amount, time and place for redemption and shall be held to secure the plaintiff against any additional interest and costs, as well as any deficiency, as a result of the public sale.  The office or the court may dispense with this requirement for good cause shown.  The defendant who requests a public sale, other than a natural person who is the owner or a voluntary transferee from that owner, shall pay all expenses and costs associated with the public sale, including, but not limited to, all sheriff's fees and commissions.

j. In the event of any dispute among defendants over the right to redeem, the court shall enter such order as is necessary to secure the plaintiff pending the resolution of the dispute, including, but not limited to, payment of plaintiff's additional interest and costs which accrue as a result of the dispute.

k. Upon redemption, the plaintiff shall furnish the redemptioner with an appropriate certificate of redemption and the redemptioner shall acquire all rights provided by law and equity but shall not be entitled to a deed or title to the mortgaged premises solely by virtue of the redemption.  A redemptioner in proper cases may proceed to foreclose the redemptioner's interest.

l. In the absence of redemption, and on proof of mailing of the order for redemption or notice thereof pursuant to subsection h. of this section and an affidavit of non-redemption, the plaintiff shall be entitled to a judgment debarring and foreclosing the equity of redemption of the defendants and each of them and any person claiming by, through or under them, and adjudging the plaintiff be vested with a valid and indefeasible estate in the mortgaged premises.  Anything to the contrary notwithstanding, redemption shall be permitted at any time up until the entry of judgment including the whole of the last day upon which judgment is entered.  A certified copy of the judgment shall be accepted for recording by the county recording officer pursuant to P.L.1939, c.170 (C.46:16-1.1).

m. Upon entry of a judgment vesting title in the plaintiff pursuant to subsection l. of this section, the debt which was secured by the foreclosed mortgage shall be deemed satisfied, and the plaintiff shall not be permitted to institute any further or contemporaneous action for the collection of the debt.

L.1995,c.244,s.11.

12. a.  With respect to the sale of a mortgaged premises under foreclosure action, each sheriff in this State shall provide for, but not be limited to, the following uniform procedures:

(1) Bidding in the name of the assignee of the foreclosing plaintiff.

(2) That adjournment of the sale of the foreclosed property shall be in accordance with N.J.S.2A:17-36.

(3) (a)  The sheriff shall schedule a sale date within 120 days of the sheriff's receipt of any writ of execution issued by the court in any foreclosure proceeding.

(b) If it becomes apparent that the sheriff cannot comply with the provisions of subparagraph (a) of this paragraph (3), the foreclosing plaintiff may apply to the office for an order appointing a Special Master to hold the foreclosure sale.

(c) Upon the foreclosing plaintiff making such application to the office, the office shall issue the appropriate order appointing a Special Master to hold the foreclosure sale.

(4) That the successful bidder at the sheriff's sale shall pay a 20 percent deposit in either cash or by a certified or cashier's check, made payable to the sheriff of the county in which the sale is conducted, immediately upon the conclusion of the foreclosure sale.  If the successful bidder cannot satisfy this requirement, the bidder shall be in default and the sheriff shall immediately void the sale and proceed further with the resale of the premises without the necessity of adjourning the sale, without renotification of any party to the foreclosure and without the republication of any sales notice.  Upon such resale, the defaulting bidder shall be liable to the foreclosing plaintiff for any additional costs incurred by such default including, but not limited to, any difference between the amount bid by the defaulting bidder and the amount generated for the foreclosing plaintiff at the resale.  In the event the plaintiff is the successful bidder at the resale, the plaintiff shall provide a credit for the fair market value of the property foreclosed.

(5)It is permissible, upon consent of the sheriff conducting the sheriff's sale, that it shall not be necessary for an attorney or representative of the person who initiated the foreclosure to be present physically at the sheriff's sale to make a bid.  A letter containing bidding instructions may be sent to the sheriff in lieu of an appearance.

(6) That each sheriff's office shall use a deed which shall be in substantially the following form:
