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.
It shall not be necessary for any heir of entail in possession intending to effect any excambion under or by virtue of the said recited Act to adopt any of the procedure thereby required, but it shall be competent to such heir of entail to present an application to the court by way of summary petition in the form and manner provided by this Act, and the court shall entertain, proceed with, and dispose of the same in every respect as if the powers to effect excambions conferred by the said recited Act had been contained in and conferred by this Act; and further, it shall not be necessary to record any contract of excambion which shall be executed at the sight and with the approbation of the court, as required by the said recited Act, in any other register than the register of tailzies.
Modifications etc. (not altering text)
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.
