(1) If, under ORS 86.705 to 86.815, a trustee sells property covered by a trust deed, the trustee's sale forecloses and terminates the interest in the property that belongs to a person to which notice of the sale was given under ORS 86.764 and 86.774 or to a person that claims an interest by, through or under the person to which notice was given. A person whose interest the trustee's sale foreclosed and terminated may not redeem the property from the purchaser at the trustee's sale. A failure to give notice to a person entitled to notice does not affect the validity of the sale as to persons that were notified.
(2) Except in accordance with subsection (4) of this section, an action for a deficiency may not be brought after a trustee's sale under ORS 86.705 to 86.815 or after a judicial foreclosure of a residential trust deed, and a judgment to foreclose a residential trust deed under ORS 88.010 may not include a money award for the amount of the debt against the grantor, the grantor's successor in interest or another person obligated on:
(a) The note, bond or other obligation secured by the trust deed for the property that was subject to the trustee's sale or the judicial foreclosure; or
(b) Any other note, bond or other obligation secured by a residential trust deed for, or mortgage on, the property that was subject to the trustee's sale or the judicial foreclosure when the debt, of which the note, bond or other obligation is evidence:
(A) Was created on the same day as, and used as part of the same purchase or repurchase transaction as, the note, bond or other obligation secured by the foreclosed residential trust deed; and
(B) Is owed to or was originated by the beneficiary or an affiliate of the beneficiary in the residential trust deed that was subject to the trustee's sale or the foreclosure.
(3) Notwithstanding ORS 88.103, if a judicial foreclosure of a trust deed that is not a residential trust deed results in a judgment that includes a money award, the judgment must provide that execution may issue for the amount by which the unpaid balance of the money award exceeds the net sale proceeds that are payable to the judgment creditor from the sale of the property that is subject to the foreclosure if:
(a) The net sale proceeds are insufficient to satisfy the money award; and
(b) The plaintiff requests the provision in the complaint.
(4) This section does not preclude:
(a) An action that forecloses, judicially or nonjudicially:
(A) Other property covered by the trust deed that is the subject of the foreclosure; or
(B) Another trust deed, mortgage, security agreement, consensual or nonconsensual security interest or lien that covers other real or personal property that is also used as security for the note, bond or other obligation that is secured by the trust deed for the property that was sold.
(b) An action against a guarantor for a deficiency that remains after a judicial foreclosure.
(5) A guarantor of an obligation secured by a residential trust deed may not recover a deficiency from the grantor or a successor in interest of the grantor.
