This is the original version (as it was originally enacted).

3Construction of s. 14 of Act of 1925.

(1)Where the vendor of one or more holdings vested in the Commission by Part II of the Act of 1925 alleges that it is necessary for the beneficial enjoyment by him of land belonging to him to which section eight of the Act of 1925 does not apply that a right of access or other right over the holding or over one or more of the holdings should be granted or reserved to him, and makes an application for the purpose, the Judicial Commissioner or Land Judge, if satisfied of the truth of the allegation, may grant or reserve to the vendor and his successors in title such right over the holdings or such one of the holdings upon such terms (if any), including payment of compensation, as the Judicial Commissioner or Land Judge may think just.

(2)An application under this section, if made before the vesting of the holding or holdings in the tenant or tenants thereof, shall be made to the Judicial Commissioner in the prescribed manner, and, if made subsequently, shall be made to the Land Judge subject to rules of court.

(3)Where any such right is granted or reserved after the vesting of the holding or holdings in the tenant or tenants thereof, it shall for the purposes of registration under the Local Registration of Title (Ireland) Act, 1891, be deemed to be an easement created by express grant after the first registration of the land, and shall be registered in such manner as the Land Judge may direct.

(4)Any person aggrieved by any decision of the Judicial Commissioner or Land Judge under this section may appeal to the Court of Appeal in Northern Ireland, and the decision of that court shall be final.

(5)In this section the expression " Land Judge " means the Judge of the High Court of Justice in Northern Ireland to whom the duties of Land Judge of the Chancery Division are for the time being assigned.
