(d)in the case of any property, a certificate of discharge had been given by the Board under this Schedule and the purchaser had no notice of any fact invalidating the certificate,

the property or interest shall then cease to be subject to the charge but the property for the time being representing it shall be subject to it.

(a)the date on which the tax became due ; and

(b)the date on which a full and proper account of the property was first delivered to the Board in connection with the chargeable transfer concerned.
