This section has no associated Explanatory Notes

42.—(1) Subject to the provisions of this Act, where property is vested in the official custodian in trust for a charity, the official custodian shall not exercise any powers of management, but shall as trustee of any property have all the same powers, duties and liabilities, and be entitled to the same rights and immunities, and be subject to the control and orders of the court, as the Department may by regulations prescribe.

(2) Subject to subsection (3), where any land is vested in the official custodian in trust for a charity, the charity trustees shall have power in the name of, and on behalf of, the official custodian to execute and do all assurances and things which they could properly execute or do in their own name and on their own behalf if the land were vested in them.

(3) If any land is so vested in the official custodian by virtue of an order under section 33, the power conferred on the charity trustees by subsection (2) shall not be exercisable by them in relation to any transaction affecting the land, unless the transaction is authorised by order of the Court or of the Commission.

(4) Where any land is vested in the official custodian in trust for a charity, the charity trustees shall have the like power to make obligations entered into by them binding on the land as if it were vested in them; and any covenant, agreement or condition which is enforceable by or against the official custodian by reason of the land being vested in the official custodian shall be enforceable by or against the charity trustees as if the land were vested in them.

(5) In relation to a corporate charity, subsections (2), (3) and (4) shall apply with the substitution of references to the charity for references to the charity trustees.

(6) Subsections (2), (3) and (4) shall not authorise any charity trustees or charity to impose any personal liability on the official custodian.

(7) Where the official custodian is entitled as trustee for a charity to the custody of securities or documents of title relating to the trust property, the official custodian may permit them to be in the possession or under the control of the charity trustees without thereby incurring any liability.
