Mortgage – Miscellaneous provisions
§5384. Assumption of a mortgage on immovable property by a third person An original vendor’s privilege or first mortgage, or both, is not extinguished nor is its ranking subordinated to any other mortgage, lien, privilege, or encumbrance when the obligation it secures is assumed by a new obligor, notwithstanding the release of the original obligor.
§5389. Additional funds advanced under mortgage or security agreement.
A. A mortgage or security interest shall secure additional funds that may be advanced by the mortgagee or secured party for the protection, preservation, repair, or recovery of the mortgaged or encumbered property, or the protection and preservation of the mortgagee’s mortgage or secured party’s security interest there under. A mortgage or security agreement may provide that the mortgagee or secured party may, at its sole election, purchase insurance or pay taxes on the mortgaged or encumbered property should the mortgagor or debtor fail to comply with its contractual obligations to do so.
B. Unless the mortgage or security agreement provides otherwise, all additional sums advanced by the mortgagee or secured party under the provisions of Subsection A are deemed to bear interest at the rate provided under the mortgage note or other secured indebtedness from the date of each such advance until repaid in full by the mortgagor or debtor.
§5393. Combination forms.
A. A mortgage note and mortgage or a promissory note and security agreement under Chapter 9 of the Louisiana Commercial Laws (R.S. 10:9-101, et seq.) may be combined under a single form, with the maker/mortgagor or debtor signing in one location on the face of the form, agreeing to the note and mortgage or security agreement covenants on the face and reverse sides thereof.
B. When one form combines the mortgage and mortgage note under the provisions of Subsection A, it is not necessary to paraph the mortgage note “Ne Varietur” for identification with the mortgage.
C. The combining of the mortgage note and mortgage or the note and security agreement under one form, with only one combined signature by the maker/ mortgagor/debtor, has no effect on the validity or enforceability of the note or the mortgage or security agreement, or on the mortgagee’s or secured party’s rights to foreclose under the mortgage or security agreement by means of executory process.
