TRACT 1:
    THAT CERTAIN PARCEL OF LAND IN THE NW1/4SW1/4 OF SECTION 21, TOWNSHIP 25 NORTH, RANGE 19 WEST, P.M.M., LAKE COUNTY, MONTANA, FURTHER SHOWN AND DESCRIBED ON DEED EXHIBIT H-717, ON FILE IN THE OFFICE OF THE CLERK AND RECORDER OF LAKE COUNTY, MONTANA.
TRACT 2:
    A FRACTIONAL PART OF THE NW1/4SW14/ OF SECTION 21, TOWNSHIP 25 NORTH, RANGE 19 WEST, P.M.M., LAKE COUNTY MONTANA, FURTHER SHOWN AND DESCRIBED ON DEED EXHIBIT H-1531, ON FILE IN THE OFFICE OF THE CLERK AND RECORDER OF LAKE COUNTY, MONTANA.
    Terry H. Foss, as Grantor, conveyed said real property to Alliance Title and Escrow Co., as Trustee, to secure an obligation owed to Rex Bosworth, as Beneficiary, by Montana Trust Indenture on September 4, 2015, and filed for record in the records of the County Clerk and Recorder in Lake County, State of Montana, on November 8, 2019, as Instrument No. 573478.
    The Beneficiary has declared a default in the terms of said Trust Indenture due to Grantor’s failure to pay the entire remaining balance of the September 4, 2015 Promissory Note, which came fully due on September 15, 2019.  By reason of said default, the Beneficiary has declared all sums owing on the obligation secured by said Trust Indenture immediately due and payable.  The total amount due on this obligation is the entire remaining balance of the Promissory Note in the amount of Twenty-Eight Thousand Four Hundred Seventy and 64/100 U.S. Dollars ($28,470.64), as well as other amounts due and payable in the amount of Three Thousand Two Hundred Twenty-Four and 21/100 U.S. Dollars ($3,224.21), for a total sum of Thirty-One Thousand Six Hundred Ninety-Four and 85/100 U.S. Dollars ($31,694.85), plus accruing interest, late charges, and other fees and costs that may be incurred or advanced.
    The Beneficiary anticipates and may disperse such amounts as may be required to preserve and protect the property and for real property taxes that may become due or delinquent unless such amounts of taxes are paid by the Grantor.  If such amounts are paid by the Beneficiary, the amounts or taxes will be added to the obligations secured by the Trust Indenture.
    Other expenses to be charged against the proceeds of this sale include the Trustee’s fees and attorneys’ fees, costs and expenses of the sale, and late charges, if any.
    The Beneficiary has elected and has directed the Trustee to sell the above-described property to satisfy the obligation.
    This sale is a public sale and any person, including the Beneficiary, excepting only the Trustee, may bid at the sale.  The bid price must be paid immediately upon the close of bidding in cash or cash equivalents (valid money orders, certified checks, or cashier’s checks).  The conveyance will be made by Trustee’s Deed without any representation or warranty, including warranty of Title, express or implied, as the sale is made strictly on an as-is, where-is basis, without limitation, the sale is being made subject to all existing conditions, if any, of lead paint, mold, or other environmental or health hazards.  The sale purchaser shall be entitled to possession of the property on the 10th day following the sale.
    The Grantor, successor in interest to the Grantor, or any other person having an interest in the property, at any time prior to the Trustee’s Sale, may pay to the Beneficiary the entire amount then due under the Trust Indenture and the obligation secured thereby (including costs and expenses actually incurred and attorneys’ fees) other than such portion of the principal as would not then be due had no default occurred and thereby cure the default.  In the event that all defaults are cured, the foreclosure will be dismissed and the Trustee’s Sale will be cancelled.
    The scheduled Trustee’s Sale may be postponed by public proclamation up to 15 days for any reason, and in the event of a bankruptcy filing, the sale may be postponed by the Trustee for up to 120 days by public proclamation at least every 30 days.
    The is an attempt to collect a debt, and any information obtained will be used for that purpose.
    DATED this 22nd day of June, 2020.
