SHIVERS, Judge.

Idacon appeals an order of the trial court granting the motion of Wakulla County State Bank to intervene and set aside a final judgment in favor of Idacon. We find intervention to have been improper in the instant case. Accordingly, we reverse and remand.

Idacon conveyed certain real property in Wakulla County under a contract for deed to Mr. and Mrs. Hawes in January 1979. The Haweses promised to pay $21,710 in monthly installments and provided a mobile home as additional security. Idacon recorded the contract for deed and a financing statement describing the mobile home in the Wakulla County Records, but did not record its security interest in the mobile home with the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (DMV) as required by Chapter 319, Florida Statutes to perfect its security interest.

In October 1980, Mr. Hawes borrowed money from the Wakulla County State Bank. The bank intended that the mobile home would collateralize this loan, and the Haweses signed a notice of lien. The bank obtained physical custody of the title to the mobile home by satisfying another creditor who had a lien recorded on the title. No notice of the Idacon lien appeared on the face of the title since Idacon had not filed its lien with DMV. The bank, however, also did not file its lien with DMV. Instead, the notice of lien was placed in the bank's "pending file."

Subsequently, the Haweses defaulted on the Idacon contract, and in July 1981, Idacon instituted foreclosure proceedings in Wakulla County, simultaneously recording a notice of lis pendens on the real property and mobile home. Notices of default were filed against the Haweses, and the court entered summary final judgment in favor of Idacon on September 16, 1981. Pursuant to the judgment, the property, including the mobile home, was sold at a public sale on October 30, 1981. Idacon purchased the property at this sale for approximately the same amount of money as was owed on the Hawes contract. On November 11, 1981, a certificate of title describing the real property and the mobile home was issued by the clerk of court to Idacon.

In October 1981, Hawes became past due on his loan at the bank, and the bank reviewed its file. At this time it was discovered that the notice of lien had not yet been filed with DMV. The bank ultimately sent its notice of lien to DMV, but it also arranged for Hawes to sell the mobile home to a party named Crum. Hawes purported to sell the mobile home to Crum on December 31, 1981, for $4,226.37, the exact amount which Hawes owed the bank. The...
