The purchaser of property sold by a sheriff pursuant to execution or order may recover
the purchase money from the judgment creditors who received the proceeds if the property
is recovered from such purchaser in consequence of an irregularity in the sale or
a vacatur, reversal or setting aside of the judgment upon which the execution or order
was based. If a judgment for the purchase money is so recovered against a judgment creditor
in consequence of an irregularity in the sale, such judgment creditor may enforce
his judgment as if no levy or sale had been made, and, for that purpose, he may move
without notice for an order restoring any lien or priority or amending any docket
entry affected by the sale.
