STATES FOR THE WESTERN DISTRICT OF MICHIGAN

Syllabus

Where a mortgage debt is payable in installments, a provision in the mortgage that if at the expiration of the time limited for the payment of all, there shall remain due on the mortgage a sum not greater than a sum named, which is less than the amount of the whole mortgage debt, the mortgagor may have the privilege of paying the amount due by giving his note therefor secured by mortgage on other real estate, does not suspend the power of foreclosure and sale for nonpayment of installments as they become due.
