(770 ILCS 70/16) (from Ch. 82, par. 516)
    Sec. 16. Sale pursuant to foreclosure. A. In all actions to enforce a lien under the provisions of this Act, the court shall, for cause, appoint a receiver with the usual powers granted in equity to operate the leasehold, subject to the lien or liens being enforced and, upon request by plaintiff, the court shall appoint a receiver or other person to conduct the sale of the property subject to the lien or liens being enforced.
    1. No property, real or personal, shall be sold by virtue of any judgment of foreclosure under this Act, except at public sale, between the hours of 9:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m., and pursuant to the procedures of this Section
    2. The receiver or other person conducting the sale shall give public notice of the sale as follows:
    (a) The notice of sale shall include at least the following information, but an immaterial error in the information shall not invalidate the legal effect of the notice:
    (1) The case, title, case number and the court in which the foreclosure was filed;
    (2) The time and place of the sale;
    (3) If the leasehold is sold, a legal description sufficient to identify it with reasonable certainty;
    (4) If personalty is sold, a description thereof sufficient to identify it with reasonable certainty, its location and times and place where it may be inspected prior to sale;
    (5) The name, address and telephone number of the person conducting the sale;
    (6) The terms of the sale; and
    (7) Such other information order by the court.
    (b) The notice of sale shall be published at least three consecutive calendar weeks (Sunday through Saturday,) once in each week, the first of such notices to be published not more than 35 days prior to the sale, the last such notice to be published not less than 7 days prior to the sale by an advertisement in a newspaper circulated to the general public in the county in which the foreclosure action was brought.
    C. The person conducting the sale shall also give notice to all parties in the action who have appeared and have not theretofore been found by the Court to be in default for failure to plead. Such notice shall be given in the manner
provided in the applicable rules of Court for service of papers other than process and complaint, not more than 28 days nor less than 7 days prior to the day of sale. After notice is given as required in this Section, a copy thereof shall be filed in the office of the Clerk of the Court entering the judgment, together with a certificate of counsel or other proof that notice has been served in compliance with this Section.
    D. The person conducting the sale shall again give notice in accordance with this Section of any adjourned sale; provided, however, that if the adjourned sale is to occur less than 30 days after the last scheduled sale, notice of any adjourned sale need be given only once, not less than 5 days prior to the date of the adjourned sale.
    E. No other notice by publication or posting shall be necessary unless required by order or rule of the Court.
    F. Upon sale of any property, the person conducting the sale shall give to the purchaser a certificate describing the property purchased by him or her, showing the amount paid therefor, or if purchased by the holder of the lien or liens being enforced, the amount of his or her bid.
    G. There shall be no right of redemption from foreclosure sale under this Act and all rights and equities of redemption from any judgment of foreclosure are barred.
    H. The person conducting the sale shall promptly make a report to the court and upon motion and notice in accordance with court rules applicable to motions generally, the court shall conduct a hearing to confirm the sale. If the court finds that notice of the sale required with subsections B, C, D and E were given and that the sale was not conducted fraudulently, the court shall then enter an order confirming the sale and giving possession of the property to the purchaser. The confirmation order may also;
    1. approve the receiver's fees and costs arising between the entry of any judgment or order appointing the receiver and the confirmation hearing;
    2. provide for a personal judgment against any party for a deficiency.
    I. Upon confirmation of the sale, the person who conducted the sale or the court shall execute an instrument to the holder of the certificate of sale sufficient to convey title to the property purchased, which instrument shall identify the court and the caption of the case in which judgment was entered. Signature and recital in the instrument of the title or authority of the person signing the instrument conveying title, of authority pursuant to the judgment and of the giving of the notices required by this Section is sufficient proof of the facts required and of such authority to execute the instrument of conveyance, but such instrument shall not be construed to contain any covenant on the part of the person executing it.
    J. The court granting the judgment of foreclosure may make further orders to enforce possession of the property purchased under any sale of foreclosure.
