The version on screen is currently in force, but there is a version available (prospective version) to show how it could change.
The prospective version will remain prospective until a date is appointed by an appropriate person or body to bring those changes into force.
To see the prospective version, use the Show Timeline of Changes feature under ‘Advanced Features’.
Commencement Orders listed in the ‘Changes to Legislation’ box as not yet applied may bring changes and effects in the prospective version into force.
There are outstanding changes not yet made by the legislation.gov.uk editorial team to Entail Amendment Act 1848. Any changes that have already been made by the team appear in the content and are referenced with annotations.
Where any estate in Scotland is held by virtue of any tailzie dated prior to the said first day of August one thousand eight hundred and forty-eight, it shall be lawful for any heir of entail born on or after the said first day of August, being of full age, and in possession of such entailed estate by virtue of such tailzie, to acquire such estate, in whole or in part, in fee simple, by applying to the Court of Session for authority to execute, and executing, and recording in the register of tailzies, under the authority of the court, an instrument of disentail in the form and manner herein-after provided; and it shall be lawful for any heir of entail, though born before the said first day of August one thousand eight hundred and forty-eight, being of full age, and in possession of such entailed estate by virtue of such tailzie dated prior to the said first day of August, with the consent (and not otherwise) of the heir next in succession, being heir apparent under the entail of the heir in possession, he being born on or after the said first day of August one thousand eight hundred and forty-eight, and being of the age of [F1eighteen years] complete at the time of granting such consent, and not subject to any legal incapacity, to acquire such estate, in whole or in part, in fee simple, by executing, under authority of the court, an instrument of disentail as aforesaid, in the form and manner herein-after provided.
Annotations are used to give authority for changes and other effects on the legislation you are viewing and to convey editorial information. They appear at the foot of the relevant provision or under the associated heading. Annotations are categorised by annotation type, such as F-notes for textual amendments and I-notes for commencement information (a full list can be found in the Editorial Practice Guide). Each annotation is identified by a sequential reference number. For F-notes, M-notes and X-notes, the number also appears in bold superscript at the relevant location in the text. All annotations contain links to the affecting legislation.
This timeline shows the different points in time where a change occurred. The dates will coincide with the earliest date on which the change (e.g an insertion, a repeal or a substitution) that was applied came into force. The first date in the timeline will usually be the earliest date when the provision came into force. In some cases the first date is 01/02/1991 (or for Northern Ireland legislation 01/01/2006). This date is our basedate. No versions before this date are available. For further information see the Editorial Practice Guide and Glossary under Help.
