Land Act, 1965

Operation of certain vesting orders.

21.—(1) Where land is vested in a purchaser by a vesting order, a vesting fiat or other instrument and the order or instrument provides for the consolidation of the land with land registered, or deemed to be registered, under the Registration of Title Acts, 1891 and 1942, (in this section referred to as the registered land), the order or instrument shall operate to vest the land in the purchaser in the same capacity, and subject to the same trusts (if any), as he holds the registered land.

(2) Where—

(a) land is vested, whether before or after the passing of this Act, in a purchaser by a vesting order under the Land Purchase Acts, and

(b) it is stated in the vesting order that the land is given in exchange for registered land,

the provisions of section 46 of the Land Act, 1923 , shall apply as if the exchange had been carried into effect pursuant to agreement under that section and as if for the references in subsection (3) of that section to the date of registration there were substituted references to the date of the vesting order.
