(e)set out the grounds, both factual and legal, for describing as a benefited property the land identified in pursuance of paragraph (b) above.

(a)an individual unable by reason of legal disability, or incapacity, to swear or affirm as mentioned in that subsection, then a legal representative of the person may swear or affirm;
(b)not an individual, then any person authorised to sign documents on its behalf may swear or affirm;
