461.     Different securities held by one mortgagee.

Where different properties are mortgaged by different mortgagors to the same mortgagee, and a sale of the two properties together is beneficial, both may be sold together and the purchase money apportioned1. Where the properties are quite separate, evidence is required that the joint sale will produce a higher price; where they are united, for example a house and a garden, or are undivided shares of the same property, this is not necessary; and the apportionment must be made on the advice of a competent person2.
