603.     Foreclosure limited to later incumbrancers.

A later incumbrancer may limit his claim to foreclosure against incumbrancers subsequent to himself and against the mortgagor, and, in this case, the prior incumbrancers are not affected by the order, as it operates only on the equity of redemption subsequent to those prior incumbrancers1. Each incumbrancer subsequent to the claimant, and also the mortgagor, must redeem or be foreclosed, so that in the result the property is clear of the claimant's, and all the subsequent, incumbrances2.
