Registration of person entitled to land in succession after lapse of six years.

21.—Where, on the application of any person claiming to be registered as owner of freehold registered land to which Part IV of the Principal Act applies in succession to a deceased full owner of such land, the Court is satisfied—

(a) that at least six years have elapsed since the death of the deceased full owner, and

(b) that the personal representatives of such owner are dead or out of the jurisdiction,

the Court may, if it think fit, notwithstanding anything contained in section 87 of the Principal Act, dispense the applicant from the necessity of raising further representation to the deceased full owner or of giving notice to his personal representatives, and may order that the applicant be registered as owner of the land.
