When any lands are left encumbered, by a deed, will, or other instrument of record, with the payment of money, or the performance of any acts by the grantee or devisee, such grantee or devisee or his heirs or assigns, upon the payment of the money or the performance of the acts, may present the receipt of such payment, or the proof of the performance of such acts, to the probate court of the county in which such lands are situated. The court must enter such payments and the proof of the performance of such acts on its journal, record the receipts and the proof of the performance of such acts on the margin of the will record in which such encumbrances are created, and order that this be done in like manner on the margin of the deed record by the county recorder. Such lands will then be relieved from the encumbrances except for fraud.
No such record of receipts or orders may be made by the probate judge nor shall he enter proof of the performance of such acts until notice thereof has been given as is required by sections 2109.32 and 2109.33 of the Revised Code.
