13(1)[F14 The Lands Tribunal] shall have the same power of apportioning any rent-service, rent-charge, chief, or other rent, payment, or incumbrance, or any rent payable in respect of lands comprised in a lease, as two justices have under the Lands Clauses Consolidation Act, 1845 [1845 c.18] .N.I.

(2)[F14 The Lands Tribunal] in fixing the amount of compensation to be awarded may in the case of the severance of any house, building or manufactory, have regard to and take into account any loss or damage which has been occasioned by or may ensue from such severance and award compensation therefor in addition to the value of the part of the premises taken by the local authority.
