Land Act, 1929

Appointment of limited administrators.

1.—Whenever, in any proceedings under the Land Purchase Acts for the exchange or consolidation of a holding or parcel of land for or with other land, the owner of such holding or parcel is dead and there is no legal personal representative of such deceased owner or the services of his legal personal representative are not conveniently available for carrying out such exchange or consolidation, the Land Commission may, on such terms and conditions (if any) as they may think fit, appoint some proper person to be administrator of the personal estate of such deceased owner limited to the said proceedings for such exchange or consolidation (as the case may be), and thereupon such limited administrator shall for the purposes of the said proceedings represent the said deceased owner in the same manner as if such owner had died intestate and letters of administration of all his personal estate and effects had been duly granted to the said limited administrator.
