Whenever the state is the owner of any property sold for taxes and the deed to the state has been filed with the Controller, and there appears of record a mortgage upon the property to the Regents of the University of California, and the mortgage and the debt secured by the mortgage have not been both paid in full and satisfied of record, the Controller, upon receiving proof, by affidavit of the president and secretary, or acting secretary or of the treasurer of the regents, that the debt secured by the mortgage has not been fully paid, shall direct the tax collector of the county or city and county in which the lands are situated, to execute a deed of the lands in the name of the state to the Regents of the University of California.

(Enacted by Stats. 1976, Ch. 1010.)

92111.
  

The tax collector shall thereupon publish a notice once a week for at least three successive weeks in some newspaper published in the county or city and county in which the lands are situated, or if there is no newspaper published therein, then the tax collector shall post a notice in three conspicuous places in the county or city and county at least three weeks before the day named in the notice.

(Enacted by Stats. 1976, Ch. 1010.)

92112.
  

The notice shall state that on or after a day mentioned, which shall be not less than four weeks, and not more than eight weeks after the first publication or posting of the notice, the tax collector will execute and deliver to the Regents of the University of California a deed to the property, and shall describe the property and shall state that the deed will be made because of a sale of the property to the state for delinquent taxes, and because the Regents of the University of California are interested in the property. No other matters need be contained in the notice. One or more pieces of land may be described in the affidavit, notice, deed, and report provided for in this article.

(Enacted by Stats. 1976, Ch. 1010.)

92113.
  

Unless prior to the day mentioned in the notice, there is paid to the tax collector (a) the full amount for which the property was sold to the state, together with all interest and penalties thereon and all expenses and costs connected therewith, and (b) all subsequent state and county taxes not theretofore paid in full, and all interest and penalties thereon, and all costs and expenses connected therewith, and also (c) the expense of publishing or posting the notice, as the case may be, the tax collector shall on the day, or within 10 days thereafter, execute, acknowledge, and deliver a deed to the regents without any payment, charge, or fee therefor, and shall within five days thereafter report in writing to the Controller the fact of the execution of the deed.

(Enacted by Stats. 1976, Ch. 1010.)

92114.
  

The expense of the publication and posting shall be paid by the Regents of the University of California, unless the expense is paid to the tax collector prior to the day mentioned in the notice.

(Enacted by Stats. 1976, Ch. 1010.)

92115.
  

If the notice describes two or more pieces of land assessed separately and sold separately to the state, and if all the payments are made within the time prescribed in respect to any one of the pieces separately assessed and sold, the piece paid upon shall not be included in the deed, and the fact of the payment and the amount paid shall be stated in the report to the Controller.

(Enacted by Stats. 1976, Ch. 1010.)

92116.
  

The deed shall transfer, grant, convey, and confirm to the Regents of the University of California the entire title to the lands, free and clear of all claims and incumbrances whatsoever. Nothing contained in this article shall be held to interfere with the right of the regents to enforce the mortgage or the payment of the debt secured thereby, or to procure a decree of foreclosure and a sale under the decree of all or any of the property described in the mortgage.

(Enacted by Stats. 1976, Ch. 1010.)

92117.
  

The deed shall recite the facts provided in this article as authorizing its execution and is prima facie evidence of the facts and of all matters therein recited and of the ownership of the lands by the regents.

(Enacted by Stats. 1976, Ch. 1010.)

92118.
  

The deed may be recorded in the office of the county recorder of the county or city and county in which the lands are situated, and upon the expiration of two years after it has been recorded, shall, except as against parties deriving title through a sale and purchase under decree of foreclosure of the mortgage, be conclusive evidence that the complete fee simple title to the property therein described vested at the date of the deed in the Regents of the University of California, free and clear of all claims, liens, charges, and incumbrances whatsoever.

(Enacted by Stats. 1976, Ch. 1010.)
