Costs incurred in asserting or defending the mortgagor's title to the mortgaged property are allowed1, but not costs incurred in defending the mortgagee's title to the mortgage against a third person2 unless provided for in the mortgage3. Similarly, the mortgagee may not charge the costs of defending proceedings for trespass brought by a third person unless those costs were incurred in protecting the title to the estate4. Where in proceedings properly taken to protect the security the mortgagee has already received costs from a third party, he is entitled to add any deficiency to his security
