  2.  The court thereupon shall cause a copy of the petition to be served, in the manner provided by statute or civil rule, upon the plaintiff in the judgment under which the real estate was sold and the purchaser thereof, together with an order that unless good cause to the contrary is shown, at a date fixed by the court, an order will be made for the sale of the whole or so much of the real estate as is sufficient to pay the prior judgments or attachments.
