When an action to obtain authority to sell real property is determined by the probate court, the probate judge shall make the necessary order for an entry of release and satisfaction of all mortgages and other liens upon the real property except the mortgage that is assumed by the purchaser. The executor, administrator, or guardian shall enter the release and satisfaction, together with a memorandum of the title of the case, the character of the proceedings, and the volume and page of record where recorded, upon the record of the mortgage, judgment, or other lien in the office where it appears as matter of record. If the executor, administrator, or guardian fails to enter the release and satisfaction, the court, on the application of an interested party, may enter the release and satisfaction and tax in the executor's, administrator's, or guardian's cost bill the fee provided by law for entering the release and satisfaction, and a fee of twenty-five cents to the court.
