intervene in such foreclosure in accordance with this Article and may be
made a party in such foreclosure.
(c) Instruments Deemed a Mortgage. For the purpose of proceeding under
this Article, any instrument described in paragraph (2) or (3) of

appropriate, shall be deemed the
mortgagor, and the real estate installment contract seller, the assignee of
the beneficial interest in the land trust and the secured party, as
