This is the original version (as it was originally enacted).

XVIIITithes or Rent charge in lieu thereof may be merged after Agreement or Award, but before Apportionment.

And be it enacted, That where by any Agreement or Award already made or hereafter to be made a Rent-charge shall have been agreed or awarded to be paid instead of the Tithes of any Parish, or instead of any of such Tithes, and shall not have been apportioned, it shall be lawful for the Person who under the Provisions of the said recited Acts would have been enabled in case such Agreement or Award had not been made to merge the Tithes in lieu of which such Rent-charge shall have been agreed or awarded to be paid, or such of the same Tithes as were payable out of Part of the said Lands, by any Deed or Declaration, to be made in such Form as the Commissioners shall approve, and to be confirmed under their Hands and Seal, to declare that the Tithes which he would have been so entitled to merge shall, so far as respects all the Lands, or, if he shall think fit, so far as respects only any specified Part of the Lands out of which the same were payable, and the Rent-charge or Portion of Rent-charge which shall have been awarded or ought to be apportioned in lieu thereof on such Lands, or specified Parts of such Lands, as the Case may be, shall be merged, and such Merger shall take effect accordingly; and in case such Merger shall extend to all the Lands which would have been chargeable with such Rent-charge, no Apportionment of such Rent-charge shall be made under the Provisions of the said recited Acts; but in case such Merger shall extend to Part only of the Lands which would have been chargeable with such Rent-charge, then such Portion of the Rent-charge shall be apportioned among the other Lands which would have been chargeable with such Rent-charge as such other Lands would have been subject to in case such Merger had not taken place; and the Owner of the Land to which such Merger shall extend shall pay such Portion of the Expences of or incident to the Apportionment as the Commissioners or any Assistant Commissioner may under the special Circumstances order to be paid by such Owner, instead of the rateable Proportions to which he would have been liable in case the whole of such Rent-charge had been apportioned.
