(e)subject to the said provisions, be deemed (unless a contrary intention appears therein) for all purposes necessary to establish the title of the person entitled to intervening rents and profits, to relate back to the date of the death of the deceased person so, however, that nothing in this paragraph shall operate to enable any person to establish a title inconsistent with the will of the deceased person.

(3)An assent or conveyance of unregistered land by a personal representative shall, in favour of a purchaser, be taken as sufficient evidence that the person in whose favour the assent or conveyance is given or made is the person who was entitled to have the estate or interest to which the assent relates vested in him but shall not otherwise prejudicially affect the claim of any person originally entitled to that estate or interest or to any charge or encumbrance thereon.
