L. 1840, Chap. 387–An act authorizing mortgagees to redeem real estate

sold for taxes and assessments. Lien of mortgage not destroyed by tax sale. SECTION 1. No sale of real estate hereafter made for the non-payment of any tax or assessment shall destroy or in any manner affect the lien of any mortgage thereon duly recorded or registered at the time of such sale except as hereinafter provided.

4 Hill, 613.

Purchaser to give notice to mortgagee. 2. It shall be the duty of the purchaser at such sale to give to the mortgagee a written notice of such sale, requiring him to pay the amount of the purchase money, with the interest at the rate allowed by law thereon, within six months after the giving of such notice.

Effect of redemption by mortgagee. S 3. If such payment shall be made the sale shall be of no further effect, and the mortgagee shall have a lien on the premises, for the amount paid, with the interest which may thereafter accrue thereon, at the rate of seven per cent per annum, in like manner as if the same had been included in his mortgage.

Failure to redeem. § 4. In case the mortgagee shall fail to make such payment, within the time so limited, he shall not be entitled to the benefit of the first section of this act.

Construction of certain terms. $ 5. The term “ mortgagee,” as used in this act, shall be construed to include assignees whose assignment shall be duly recorded, and personal representatives, and the term “purchaser" shall be construed to include assignees, and real or personal representatives, as the case may be.

Notice how given; evidence of notice. 8 6. The notice required by this act may be given either personally or in the manner required by law in respect to notices of non-acceptance or non-payment of notes or bills of exchange; and a notarial certificate thereof shall be presumptive evidence of the fact of such notice; such certificates may be recorded in the county in which the mortgage was recorded, in the same manner, and with same effect, as is by law prescribed in respect to deeds or other evidences of title of real estate.

[The foregoing act, L. 1840, ch. 387, was expressly repealed by L. 1850, ch. 298, § 114, which latter act was expressly repealed by L. 1855, ch. 427, § 92, without providing against the revival of the act of 1840. The editor has therefore inserted here the act of 1840. Here it should be observed, however, that the act of 1855 contained a series of sections (76–81), which were, with a few formal variations, an exact transcript of the act of 1840 ; and two of which sections (77 and 81) were amended by L. 1870, ch. 280."
