Acquisition of Derelict Sites Act, 1940

Vesting orders.

5.—(1) If no application is made under and in accordance with the immediately preceding section for the annulment of a preliminary order or if, where any such application is made, on the final determination thereof such preliminary order is not annulled, the sanitary authority by whom such preliminary order was made may by order (in this Act referred to as a vesting order) acquire the land to which such preliminary order relates or, where such determination has restricted the application of such preliminary order to part of such land, such part of such land.

(2) Where a sanitary authority, before making a vesting order, become aware that the land to be acquired by such order is subject (whether alone or in conjunction with other land) to any annuity or other payment to the Irish Land Commission, or to any charge for estate duty or succession duty payable to the Revenue Commissioners on the death of any person, such sanitary authority shall forthwith inform the Irish Land Commission or the Revenue Commissioners (as the case may be) of the intention to make such order.

(3) Whenever a sanitary authority makes a vesting order, they shall within fourteen days after making such order—

(a) post a copy of such order on or near the land acquired by such order, and

(b) give a copy of such order to the occupier (if any) of such land and to every (if any) owner of such land whose existence and name and the address at which he ordinarily resides can be ascertained by such sanitary authority by reasonable inquiries.
