61Special provisions about land
This section has no associated Explanatory Notes

(1)For the purposes of this section these rights affecting land are relevant land rights—

(a)a right of reverter (or in Scotland the right of the fiar on the termination of a liferent);

(b)a right of pre-emption;

(c)a right of forfeiture;

(d)a right of re-entry;

(e)a right of irritancy;

(f)an option;

(g)a right similar to anything falling within paragraphs (a) to (f).

(2)No relevant land right is to operate or become exercisable as a result of a transfer of land—

(a)under a transfer scheme,

(b)in consequence of anything done under Schedule 6, or

(c)pursuant to an obligation imposed by a provision included in a scheme by virtue of section 42(4)(a) or (b).

(3)In the case of a transfer mentioned in subsection (2) a relevant land right is to have effect as if—

(a)the person to whom the land is transferred were the same person in law as the person transferring the land, and

(b)no transfer of the land had taken place.

(4)Subsection (5) applies if—

(a)apart from subsections (2) and (3) a relevant land right would have operated in favour of a person or become exercisable by him, but

(b)the circumstances are such that in consequence of those subsections the right cannot subsequently operate in his favour or become exercisable by him (as the case may be).

(5)In such a case just compensation is payable to him by the person to whom the land is transferred or the person transferring it (or both) in respect of the right’s extinguishment.

(6)A dispute about whether or how much compensation is payable or about the person to or by whom it is payable must be referred to and decided by—

(a)an arbitrator appointed by the President of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (if the proceedings are to be held in England and Wales),

(b)an arbiter appointed by the Chairman of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors in Scotland (if the proceedings are to be held in Scotland), or

(c)an arbitrator appointed by the Lord Chancellor (if the proceedings are to be held in Northern Ireland).

(7)If it appears to the person transferring the land that a person is or may be entitled to compensation he must—

(a)notify that person in writing that he is or may be entitled, and

(b)invite him to make representations to the person transferring the land, and to do so not later than the expiry of the period of 14 days starting with the date of issue of the notification.

(8)But if the person transferring the land is not aware of the name and address of the person concerned he must publish in such manner as he thinks appropriate a notice—

(a)containing information about the right affected, and

(b)inviting any person who thinks he is or may be entitled to compensation to make representations to the person transferring the land, and to do so within the period (not less than 28 days starting with the date of publication of the notice) specified in the notice.

(9)Subsections (2) and (3) apply in relation to the doing of any thing in relation to land (including the grant or creation of an estate or interest in it or right over it) as they apply in relation to a transfer of land; and a reference in this section to the person to whom the land is transferred or the person transferring it is to be construed accordingly.
