2005 Washington Revised Code RCW 61.12.093: Abandoned improved real estate — Purchaser takes free of redemption rights.

    In actions to foreclose mortgages on real property improved by structure or structures, 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 sheriff's 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 sheriff's 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 payment upon the mortgage obligation within the said six month period, will be prima facie evidence of abandonment.

    [1965 c 80 § 1; 1963 c 34 § 1.]

Notes:
    Deed to issue upon request immediately after confirmation of sale: RCW 6.21.120.
