Modifications etc. (not altering text)
All the provisions of the recited Acts which relate or apply to improvements of entailed estates shall be held and construed as including and applying to the erection of cottages for the labourers, farm servants, and artisans upon such estates, in the same manner in all respects as if the erection of such cottages had been specified in the ninth section of the first-recited Act among the other improvements therein mentioned.
The erection of cottages for the labourers, farm servants, and artisans upon entailed estates, or upon lands towards the improvement of which such monies or balances of monies as aforesaid are applicable under the powers of the second and third recited Acts, shall be held to be one of the permanent improvements of such estates or lands contemplated by the second and third recited Acts; and all the provisions of those Acts which relate to permanent improvements of such estates or lands shall be held and construed as including and applying to the erection of such cottages.
Provided always, that nothing in this Act contained shall authorize the creation of any charge upon entailed estates, or against succeeding heirs of entail, in respect of the erection of cottages, or shall authorize the application towards the erection of cottages of any monies in which succeeding heirs of entail are interested, unless the court before which proceedings in pursuance of the recited Acts, or any of them, shall be taken shall be satisfied that the said estates or the succeeding heirs of entail will be permanently benefited to the extent of the charge so created or monies so applied, and that the cottages in respect of which such charge is created, or towards the erection of which such monies are applied, have been completed in a proper and substantial manner.
