(1958) Redemption statutes do not constitute the exclusive remedy of a mortgagor; in proper cases equity will enforce the right of redemption independent of and outside the statutes.  Fitzpatrick v. Federer (Mo.), 315 S.W.2d 826.

(1959) Where trial court denied petition to redeem from foreclosure and appeal was not heard or decided within year and during such year owner of equity of redemption did not pay or offer to pay the debt secured by the mortgage, the case became moot and the right of redemption was lost. Euclid Terrace Corp. v. Golterman Enterprises, Inc. (A.), 327 S.W.2d 542.

(1962) Where mortgaged premises were damaged by fire prior to foreclosure sale at which mortgagee purchased premises at full amount of the outstanding indebtedness, mortgagor was entitled to the insurance proceeds as the purchase constituted payment and extinguished the debt. Northwestern National Insurance Co. v. Mildenberger (A.), 359 S.W.2d 380.

(1968) Where purchaser of property sold under foreclosed deed of trust purchased property for himself and not for or on behalf of debt holder, mortgagor did not have a cause of action for redemption. Dickey v. Barnes (A.), 427 S.W.2d 732.

(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.
