(1951) Where holder of unrecorded warranty deed to land was in the U.S. Military service at time of foreclosure of mortgage on such land, he was not entitled, under federal Soldiers' and Sailors' Civil Relief Act, as against innocent purchaser, to have foreclosure sale set aside.

(1951) Because §§ 443.420, 443.430 and 443.440 expressly provide, in the event a bond to redeem is posted, for the delivery to the purchaser of a certificate of sale, it implies that when redemptioner gives notice of his intention to redeem the trustee is not to deliver his trustee's deed to the purchaser pending the lapse of the twenty days allowed for the posting of the bond. Leone v. Bear, 362 Mo. 464, 241 S.W.2d 1008.

(1975) This section held constitutional as against claim that it constitutes state action and thereby violates the due process clause of the fourteenth amendment to the Constitution of the United States. Federal National Mortgage Association v. Howlett (Mo.), 521 S.W.2d 428.
