Every mortgage deed presented for record shall contain or have endorsed upon it the name and address of the mortgagor and mortgagee and the address shall be recorded as part of the mortgage deed. Failure to comply with this section shall not affect the validity of any mortgage deed, but the city or town clerk may charge an additional two dollars ($2.00) for a recording fee if the name and address does not appear on the instrument.
