740. Interest on mortgage of settled property.

Where the mortgaged property is in settlement subject to the mortgage, it is the duty of the tenant for life to keep down the interest1, but this is a duty only as between himself and the remainderman. If he makes good a deficiency out of his own money, he has no charge for the amount on the inheritance, unless in some way he has intimated his intention to charge it2. Subsequent rents during the life of a tenant for life are applicable to liquidate arrears during the same life tenancy, but he is not liable to make good arrears
