Mortgage —— Originating Summons —

70 THE IRISH REPORTS. [1916.. BUNYAN v. BUNYAN. Mortgage— Order for Delivery of Possession to Mortgagee — Originating Setnusfons— Order LV, r. 7. The defendant, in the year 1904, had executed a mortgage of a house to the plaintiff. No part of the principal had been paid, and a large sum was due for arrears of interest. There was no prospect of the defendant being able to pay the amount due. The defendant was in possession of and residing in the house, and it was stated in an affidavit made by a local auctioneer that it would be difficult, if not impossible, to sell the premises while the defendant remained in possession.

The affidavit of the plaintiff stated as follows : " I require possession of the said premises in order to put the same up for sale under my power of sale as mortgagee, which I intend to do forthwith if enabled to do so by the order which I ask of this honourable court. It would be impossible to realize the property while the defendant retains possession thereof."
