he shall, subject to the following provisions of this section, be entitled to compensation from [F2the person on whose application the compulsory rights order was made] of an amount equal to that loss.

(2)The preceding subsection shall not apply except where the person incurring the loss is the person who is for the time being entitled to occupy so much of the holding as is comprised in the order, or would be entitled for the time being to occupy it if the order had not been made.

[F3(2A)Where, in the case of any sale in respect of which compensation is payable under this section, a person other than the person who applied for the order is entitled, on the effective date of the sale, to the rights conferred by the compulsory rights order, that compensation shall be payable by the person entitled to those rights, instead of by the person who applied for the order.]

(3)A person shall not be entitled to compensation under this section in respect of a forced sale unless he has given to [F4the person potentially liable] not less than ten days’ notice of the intended sale, and has, before the sale, afforded to [F4the person to whom the notice was given, or any person designated for the purpose by him,] reasonable facilities to inspect the property intended to be sold, in so far as he was in a position to afford such facilities.
