(Cite as: 8 V.S.A. § 3471)
  • § 3471. Mortgages on real and personal property as liens; priorities

    Any mortgages acquired by an insurer on real or personal property so written as to secure a present debt and any future advances by the mortgagee or an assignee shall be a lien upon the mortgaged property for the full amount of debt directly created between the mortgagor and the mortgagee and between the mortgagor and an assignee of the mortgagee subsequent to assignment, due to the mortgagee or assignee at any given time provided that if the mortgaged property includes a homestead, the spouse of the mortgagor must consent in writing to the creation of any subsequent indebtedness. Any such mortgage may be assigned for the full amount due thereon at the time of such assignment. A subsequent mortgage on the same premises shall be inferior to the first mortgage unless the second mortgagee in writing notifies the first mortgagee of the incidence of his or her mortgage, in which case indebtedness created by the mortgagor to the first mortgagee subsequent to such notice shall be inferior to the lien of the second mortgagee. In any conflict with other provisions of Vermont statutes this section shall control. (Added 1967, No. 344 (Adj. Sess.), § 1 (ch. 1, subch. 5, art. 3, § 7).)
