Any person having any vested remainder interest in any real property in which any other person has a life interest, who has paid any money for necessary repairs or improvements upon such real property, shall have a lien thereon for the same. The court of probate for the district in which such real property or any part thereof is situated may, upon such remainderman’s written application made during the continuance of such life estate or within sixty days thereafter and after such notice to parties in interest as it may prescribe, ascertain the amount so necessarily expended, and may order the sale, subject to such life interest if it is not terminated, of so much of such property as will repay the sum so advanced.
