(a) Whenever a mortgage deed in statutory form or other form mortgaging real property
is entitled at the beginning thereof “Mortgage to secure present and future loans
under §§ 34-25-1 -- 34-25-5” and contains in its provisions a provision to the effect that it is intended to
secure present and future loans and states a maximum amount as the total of the principal
amount of loans to be secured thereby, hereinafter referred to as the stated maximum
amount, the mortgage deed shall be security from the time of its recording in the
records for recording real estate mortgages in the city or town in which the real
property mortgaged therein is located for all loans which at the time of or before
the recordings are made or agreed to be made by the mortgagee to the mortgagor on
the security of the mortgage and shall also constitute security from the time of its
recording for all additional loans made from time to time by the mortgagee to the
mortgagor on the security of the mortgage after the recording of the mortgage and
prior to its discharge of record, whether or not made after reduction of the principal
of any loan made on the security of the mortgage. The mortgage shall also be security for interest, taxes, insurance premiums and
other obligations undertaken by such mortgagor in the mortgage deed or in the note
or notes secured thereby, notwithstanding that the interest, taxes, insurance premiums
and other obligations, when added to the total principal amount of the loans outstanding
at any time, may cause the amount secured by the mortgage to exceed the stated maximum
(b) Provided, however, that such stated maximum amount shall not be an amount which
exceeds by more than three thousand dollars ($3,000) the total of the principal amount
of loans which at the time of or before the recording the mortgagee made or agreed
to make to the mortgagor.
(c) And provided further, that that portion of the total amount of the principal of
all loans outstanding at any one time made on the security of the mortgage in excess
of the stated maximum amount shall not, to the extent of such excess, be secured by
the mortgage while the total amount outstanding is in excess of the stated maximum
