NOTICE OF CANCELLATION OF CONTRACT FOR DEED YOU ARE NOTIFIED: 1. Default has occurred in the Contract for Deed (“Contract”) dated October 27, 2014 and recorded on October 29, 2014, as Document Number A000094318 in the Office of the County Recorder of Lake of the Woods County, Minnesota, in which Robert A. Rizzi and Ruth Rizzi, husband and wife, as seller, sold to Randall David Monnie and Jordan D. Coughlin , as purchaser, the real property in Lake of the Woods County, Minnesota, described as follows: Lots 8 and 9, Block 2, Lindsay’s Addition to Baudette, according to the recorded plat thereof. In 2004, the Contract for Deed was recorded reflecting parcel number 2. The default is as follows: In breach of the Contract for Deed, Purchaser allowed an attorney’s lien to be placed against the property, has committed waste and allowed the property to fall into waste and disrepair, and seems to have abandoned the property and failed to properly winterize it. The building is in poor condition on the interior and exterior. Animal feces is inside the house and a broken down automobile has been left on the property. Purchaser has therefore failed to keep the property in good condition and repair. In further breach, Purchaser Coughlin assigned his interest to Purchaser Monnie without first obtaining approval from Seller. Such a breach allows Seller to declare the entire balance of principal and interest due and payable in full, without notice to Purchaser. Purchaser has left no forwarding address or contact information through which Seller may contact Purchaser.
