(a) An order or judgment specifically authorizes the sale of the equitable interest; and

(b) The writ of execution specifically directs the sale of the equitable interest.

(3) If a writ of execution specifically directs the sale of the equitable interest in real property, the equitable interest shall be levied on and sold in the same manner as provided for real property under ORS 18.860 (Function of writ) to 18.993 (Effect of ORS 18.860 to 18.993 on court’s ability to direct seizure).

(4) A purchaser’s interest in a land sale contract, as defined by ORS 18.960 (Definitions), or a leasehold interest in land with an unexpired term of more than two years, may be sold pursuant to a writ of execution even though the sale is not specifically authorized by an order or judgment and the writ does not specifically direct the sale of the interest.
