Scope and Content Note

This series consists of common orders issued by the Vice Chancellor in mortgage cases.

The orders direct a Master to ascertain and report in the court on the amount of money owed by the defendant, upcoming payments due and the dates, total amount outstanding in the mortgage, the condition of the property, and whether it would be more beneficial to all parties to sell the property in one or several parcels. The copies of the orders are on printed forms with the information relevant to each case inserted in the appropriate location. On occasion additional directions have been added at the end of the printed order. The Court rules allowed the issuance of these orders in cases where the bill of complaint was taken as confessed by the defendant. The orders contain the names of the complainant, his solicitor and the defendant, the date the order was issued, the county of residence and sometimes the name of the Master to whom the case was referred and the substance of the order.
