§38-4-25. Judgment on defaulted purchase money notes.
If any note so taken be not paid to the officer when due, he
shall indorse thereon any payments made to him and return it to
the office of the clerk of the court from which such execution,
order of sale or other process issued, who shall indorse thereon
the date of such return, whereupon the clerk shall, without
process or further proceedings, enter, in the law order book,
judgment in favor of the officer upon such note for the amount
remaining unpaid with interest. Such judgment shall be as final
and valid as if entered by the court, except only that the court
shall have such control of it as is given by article two, chapter
fifty-eight of this code.
