REVISED JUDICATURE ACT OF 1961 (EXCERPT)
Act 236 of 1961
600.6069 Conveyance of premises; time; effect; executor, administrator, or person equitably entitled; real estate held in trust.
(1) After the expiration of 15 months from the time of the sale of any real estate, if any part of the premises sold shall remain unredeemed by the person against whom the execution issued, or by any person entitled to redeem the same within 1 year from the time of such sale, according to the provisions of this chapter, the officer making such sale, or his successor in office, shall complete the same, by executing, in due form of law, a conveyance of the premises so remaining unredeemed, either to the original purchaser or to the creditor who may have acquired the title of such original purchaser, or to the assigns of such purchaser, or to the creditor who may have purchased such title from any other creditor, as the case may be; which conveyance shall be valid and effectual to convey all the right, title and interest which was sold on such execution.
(2) In case the person who would be entitled to a conveyance of any real estate sold by virtue of an execution dies before the execution of the conveyance, the officer shall execute and deliver such conveyance to the executor or administrator of the person so deceased. In any case under this section, where the rights of the person or persons entitled to such real estate, or any interest therein, shall render it necessary, the circuit court of the county in which the officer who made the sale resided, on a hearing of the parties interested, properly brought before it by complaint, may direct the conveyance to be made to the person or persons equitably entitled thereto, in such manner as shall be just; and such conveyance shall have the same effect as provided in subsection (1) of this section.
(3) The real estate so conveyed to any such executor or administrator shall be held in trust for the use of the heirs of such deceased person, subject to the dower of his widow, if there be any; but the same may be sold for the payment of debts and legacies, in the same manner as lands whereof the deceased died seized.
