Probate Practice and Procedure

Real Property of Decedents and Incompetents

SECTION 33-19-2

§ 33-19-2. Terms of mortgages and notes.

A mortgage given by an executor, administrator, or guardian, under leave from a probate court, may contain such powers of sale, conditions and covenants as are usual in mortgages taken by savings banks in this state. Notes secured by, and covenants contained in, mortgages given by executors, administrators, and guardians, so far as those notes and covenants are made by the executor, administrator, or guardian as such, shall not bind the executor, administrator, or guardian personally, but only the estate of the deceased or ward.
