Section 2329.20 | Land not to be sold for less than two thirds of appraised value.


Except as otherwise provided in this section or sections 2329.51 and 2329.52 of the Revised Code, no tract of land shall be sold for less than two-thirds the amount of the appraised value as determined pursuant to section 2329.17 of the Revised Code. In all cases in which a junior mortgage or other junior lien is sought to be enforced against real estate by an order, judgment, or decree of court, subject to a prior lien thereon, and such prior lien, and the claims or obligations secured thereby, are unaffected by such order, judgment, or decree, the court making such order, judgment, or decree, may determine the minimum amount for which such real estate may be sold. In such a case, the minimum amount shall be not less than two-thirds of the difference between the appraised value of the real estate as determined in that section, and the amount remaining unpaid on the claims or obligations secured by such prior lien.
