561.18 WASTE PENDING YEAR FOR REDEMPTION; INJUNCTION.
When real property is sold upon execution or under judgment or mortgage, until the
expiration of the time allowed for redemption, the court may restrain the commission of waste
on the property, by order granted, with or without notice, on application of the purchaser or the
purchaser's assigns holding the certificate of sale; but it is not waste for the person in possession of
the property at the time of sale, or entitled to the possession afterwards, during the time allowed
for redemption, to continue to use it in the same manner in which it was previously used, or to use
it in the ordinary course of husbandry, or to make the necessary repairs of the buildings thereon,
or to use wood or timber on the property therefor, or for the repair of fences or for fuel for the
possessor's family, while the possessor occupies the property.
