Effect of Registration

Marginal note:Revolving mortgages

 A registered mortgage has priority over a subsequently registered interest that affects the same parcel of Westbank land, to the extent of the money actually advanced under the mortgage, to a maximum of the amount secured by the mortgage, even if all or part of the money was advanced after the registration of the subsequently registered interest, unless the mortgagee had actual notice of the registration of the subsequently registered interest before making the advance.

Marginal note:Deferred priority

  •  (1) The holder of a registered interest, or a person applying to register an interest, may apply to record a postponement agreement that gives priority over the registered interest to a specified interest that was, or is to be, subsequently registered.

  • Marginal note:Priority on recording

    (2) On the recording of a postponement agreement, priority shall be accorded to the interests referred to in the agreement in the manner provided for in the agreement.
