Provisions supplementary to Articles 20 and 21N.I.

22.—(1) Where in the case of any hereditament the owner is rated in respect thereof in pursuance of Article 20, or has undertaken in pursuance of Article 21 to pay or collect the rates charged in respect thereof, the amount due from him on account of those rates shall be recoverable by the Department from him in like manner and subject to the like conditions as rates payable by the occupier of a hereditament (not being an occupier by whom a notice under Article 29 of his election to pay rates by instalments has been given and is for the time being in force) are recoverable from the occupier.

(2) The Department may serve on an owner who is rated under Article 20 instead of the occupier or who enters into an agreement with the Department under Article 21 a notice requiring him to state to the Department in writing, within a period and in the manner specified in the notice,—

(a)the names and addresses of the occupiers of the hereditaments in respect of which he is so rated or has so agreed; and

(b)such particulars with respect to the periods for which any of those hereditaments have been unoccupied and with respect to the amount which he has failed to collect from the occupiers as the Department may require for the purpose of enabling it to determine what amount is properly due from the owner under Article 20 or 21;

and the owner shall comply with the notice.

(3) Where the name of any person liable to be rated as owner of any hereditament is not known to the Department, it shall be sufficient to assess him to the rate by the description of the “owner” of the hereditament (naming it) in respect of which the assessment is made, without further name or description.

F1[(4)  The Department may by order direct that for any percentage mentioned in Article 20(4) or 21(1) there shall be substituted such other percentage as may be specified in the order.

[F2(4A) In paragraphs (4B) and (4C) “existing agreement”, in relation to an order under either of those paragraphs, means an agreement under Article 21 which is in force on the commencement of the order under that paragraph.

(4B) Where the Department makes an order under paragraph (4), the Department may by order direct that for any percentage specified in an existing agreement there shall be substituted such other percentage as may be specified in the order under this paragraph.

(4C) The Department may by order direct that for any percentage mentioned in an existing agreement in respect of a hereditament of a class specified in the order there shall be substituted such other percentage as may be specified in the order.

(4D) The power conferred by paragraph (4C) is exercisable whether or not it is exercised in consequence of an order under paragraph (4).]

(5)  An order under paragraph (4) [F3, (4B) or (4C)] shall be subject to affirmative resolution and shall have effect from the beginning of the year after that in which it is made.]
