Modifications etc. (not altering text)
So much of the tenth section of the M1Lands Clauses Consolidation Act, 1845, as provides that, save in the case of lands of which any person is seised in fee or entitled to dispose absolutely for their own benefit, the consideration to be paid for any lands, or for any damage done thereto, shall be in a gross sum, is hereby repealed.]
[F2the powers to recover any rentcharge]provided by the eleventh section of the said Act are hereby extended to all cases of sale and purchase or compensation under the said Act where the parties interested in such sale, or entitled to such compensation, are under any disability or incapacity, and have no power to sell or convey such lands or to receive such compensation, except under the provisions of the said Act.
Modifications etc. (not altering text)
The power to sell and convey lands in consideration of an annual feu duty or ground annual, under the tenth section of the Lands Clauses Consolidation (Scotland) Act, 1845, and the power to recover such annual feu duty or ground annual, are hereby extended to all cases of sale or purchase or compensation under the said Act, where the parties interested in such sale are under any disability or incapacity, and have no power to sell or convey such lands, or to receive such compensation, except under the provisions of the said Act.
In every case of such sale or compensation by any parties other than parties seised in fee or entitled to dispose absolutely of the lands so sold or damaged, the amount of such rentcharge, annual feu duty or ground annual, herein-before mentioned, shall be settled in the manner directed in the ninth section of each of the said Acts respectively: Provided, that the amount of such annual rentcharge, annual feu duty or ground annual, shall in no case be less than one-fourth part greater than the net annual rent received by the parties beneficially interested in such lands, upon an average of the last seven years; and that a charge of five per cent. on the gross sum estimated or fixed as aforesaid by way of compensation for any damage that may be done to the said lands shall in all such cases be added to and shall form a part of the said rentcharge, annual feu duty or ground annual; and that no fine, foregift, grassum, premium, or other consideration in the nature thereof, shall be paid or taken in respect of the lands so sold or damaged, other than the annual rentcharge, annual feu duty or ground annual, made payable for such lands: Provided also, that such rentcharge shall be and remain upon and for the same uses, trusts, and purposes as those upon which the rents and profits of the land so conveyed stood settled or assured at or immediately before the conveyance thereof, and shall be a first charge on the tolls and rates, if any, payable under the special Act.
In case the promoters of the undertaking shall be empowered, by any Act or Acts relating thereto, to be passed after the passing of this Act, to borrow money to an amount not exceeding a prescribed sum, then in the event of the promoters of the undertaking agreeing at any time after the passing of this Act with any person, under the powers of this Act and of either of the Acts herein-before mentioned, or of either of the said Acts only, for the purchase of any lands in consideration of the payment of a rentcharge, annual feu duty or ground annual, the powers of the promoters of the undertaking for borrowing money shall be reduced by an amount equal to twenty years purchase of any rentcharge, annual feu duty or ground annual, so for the time being payable.
For the purchase or acquisition of any messuages, lands, tenements, and hereditaments wanted for the service of the Admiralty or of the War Department or for the defence of the realm, it shall be lawful for Her Majesty’s Principal Secretary of State for the War Department for the time being to use all or any of the powers and provisions by the Lands Clauses Consolidation Act, 1845, and by the Lands Clauses Consolidation (Scotland) Act, 1845, given to promoters of the undertaking, as therein mentioned; and for such purposes the said Principal Secretary shall be deemed and taken to be the promoters of an undertaking within the meaning of the said Act; and all the powers and provisions thereof shall, if used by Her Majesty’s Principal Secretary of State for the War Department, be treated as if they were contained in the M2Defence Act, 1842, for the purpose of being used and made available by the principal officers of Her Majesty’s Ordnance, and had been transferred to the said Principal Secretary for the time being by the M3Ordnance Board Transfer Act, 1855, for the purposes aforesaid: Provided always, that nothing herein contained shall authorize any purchase otherwise than by agreement of any land, except according to the provisions of the twenty-third section of the Defence Act, 1842, or prejudice or affect the powers and authorities of the said Principal Secretary for the time being under the said last-mentioned statutes, or either of them.
Modifications etc. (not altering text)
This Act shall be read and construed as part of the said Lands Clauses Consolidation Act, 1845, or of the Lands Clauses Consolidation (Scotland) Act, 1845, in all matters in which it relates to the said Acts respectively; and in citing this Act in other Acts of Parliament, and in legal instruments, it shall be sufficient to use the expression of “The Lands Clauses Consolidation Acts Amendment Act, 1860.”
