755.     Mortgagee's costs of recovery of debt.

The mortgagee is allowed the costs of a claim to recover the mortgage debt, whether brought against the mortgagor1 or a surety, and notwithstanding that the claim is unproductive through the surety's insolvency2 or that the contract of suretyship is subsequent to the mortgage3. The mortgagee may also recover costs incidental to the dishonour of a bill or note4, and the costs of administration of a deceased mortgagor's estate if this is required for recovering the debt5.
