CIVIL CODE
SECTION 2888-2892

2888.  Notwithstanding an agreement to the contrary, a lien, or a
contract for a lien, transfers no title to the property subject to
the lien.

2889.  All contracts for the forfeiture of property subject to a
lien, in satisfaction of the obligation secured thereby, and all
contracts in restraint of the right of redemption from a lien, are
void.

2890.  The creation of a lien does not of itself imply that any
person is bound to perform the act for which the lien is a security.

2891.  The existence of a lien upon property does not of itself
entitle the person in whose favor it exists to a lien upon the same
property for the performance of any other obligation than that which
the lien originally secured.

2892.  One who holds property by virtue of a lien thereon, is not
entitled to compensation from the owner thereof for any trouble or
expense which he incurs respecting it, except to the same extent as a
borrower, under Sections 1892 and 1893.
