    • (2) If the mortgage, pledge, or other lien is a valid claim against the estate and has been allowed, the receipt of the purchaser for the amount due him or her from the proceeds of the sale is a payment pro tanto.
  • (b) Nothing permitted under the terms of this section shall be deemed to be an allowance of a claim based upon the mortgage, pledge, or other lien.
