Dear Sir / Madam,

The bank is authorized to sell the entire security pledged and hypothecated with it on "as is where is" basis. Once the sale is completed, all encumbrances on the entire property - immoveable and moveable assets, whether the bank takes possession or not, are transferred to the purchaser in the auction.
