HC Deb 31 March 1909 vol 3 c316

asked the Attorney General for Ireland, whether, in practice, judicial tenants and non-judicial who have signed purchase agreements but have not received their vesting orders are allowed, the former at the expiry of the current judicial term and the latter at any time before receipt of the vesting order, to have a fair rent judicially fixed?


As a matter of practice, I am informed by the Land Commission that cases such as are mentioned in the question are adjourned pending the completion of the sale. If for any reason the negotiations for sale fall through, the rent is fixed on the application, and the order relates back to the date when the originating notice was served, so that the tenant suffers no loss by the adjournment.
