APPENDIX.

parish to which the application applies on two successive Sundays before the diet of public worship on each of these days, and a notice intimating the Petition be inserted in the Scotsman newspaper, and in a newspaper circulating in the county in which the parish referred to in said notice is situated, once a week for two successive weeks in each of such newspapers, provided always that the Lord Ordinary may make such other or further order regarding intimation as he may consider to be necessary or expedient in the circumstances of the case.

5. After the period of intimation ordered by the Lord Ordinary has expired, the Petition may be enrolled for an order as follows, viz. :

(a) If a state of teinds has been lodged with the Clerk of Teinds by the titulars or heritors, for a remit to the Clerk to prepare a teind roll.

(b) If no state of teinds has been so lodged (and unless an application under paragraph 6 hereof shall be granted), for an order on the heritors to meet and choose a common agent, and to lodge a state of teinds within a time to be specified in such order, and upon such state of teinds being lodged for a remit to the Clerk to prepare a teind roll.

6. On enrolment under paragraph 5 hereof, the petitioners or any heritor or titular may apply by motion to dispense with the appointment of a common agent and also (if the circumstances justify that course) with the preparation and lodging by the heritors of a state of teinds.

7. In any case in which application is made to dispense with the appointment by the heritors of a common agent the Lord Ordinary may by interlocutor make such orders with regard to the conduct of the process as he may think just and expedient, and may require as a condition of granting the application that the party applying shall make such provision as to the Court may appear just and sufficient for the payment of the fee fund dues, including the expense of preparing the teind roll.

8. In any case in which the preparation and lodging of a state of teinds by the heritors is dispensed with, the Lord Ordinary shall remit to the Clerk of Teinds to prepare and lodge a teind roll according to the state of the teinds as disclosed in the last locality process.

9. The procedure for the appointment of a common agent shall be the same mutatis mutandis as for the appointment of a common agent in a process of locality.

10. After the teind roll has been prepared the clerk shall print and report the same to the Lord Ordinary, who shall take the roll into consideration and shall make such order as he shall think fit with respect to intimation of the roll by advertisement or on the church door or otherwise (including where necessary an order on the heritors for the appointment of a common agent in the event of such appointment having been formerly dispensed with).

11. The teind roll shall be retained in the hands of the clerk subject to inspection by any party interested, and shall not be lent or given out to any person whatsoever. But after the Lord Ordinary has made an order for intimation printed copies may be supplied to the common agent for distribution among the heritors, and where there is no common agent to any heritor who applies.

12. The Lord Ordinary shall either hear parties viva voce upon such objections as may be lodged within eighteen months after the order for intimation of the teind roll, and upon any answers that may be made thereto at the Bar; or he may, if he shall see cause, allow all concerned to give in written answers to such objections within such time as he shall think proper to appoint, and shall thereafter proceed, in so far as regards any application for prorogating the time for giving in papers, in the manner directed by section 12 of the Court of Session Act, 1825.

13. After (a) the objections (if any) to the teind roll have been disposed of by the Court, and (6) any extrajudicial surrenders of teind made before the passing of the said Act 15 & 16 Geo. V., c. 33, have been intimated, and evidence thereof produced, to the clerk (which shall be done before the expiry of six months after the date of the order for intimation of the teind roll), and (c) any surrenders of teind made in accordance with the provisions of the Sixth Schedule of the said Act 15 & 16

APPENDIX.

[ocr errors]

Geo. V., c. 33, have become effectual, and (d) intimation has been received by the clerk claiming that the deficiency of stipend caused by any such surrenders shall be reallocated among the heritors in the parish who have unexhausted teinds not yet allocated for stipend, and (e) objections, if any, of any heritor to such reallocation have been disposed of by the Lord Ordinary, a remit shall be made to the clerk to amend the roll, and if, in virtue of the amendments, the Lord Ordinary shall deem it necessary, he may order the clerk to reprint the roll as amended before declaring the roll to be final.

14. After the Lord Ordinary has by interlocutor declared the roll to be final he shall, where a common agent has been appointed, direct that an account of the expenses incurred to the common agent be lodged in process, and when lodged remit the same to the auditor to tax and report; and after approving of such report, shall grant decree against the heritors in favour of the common agent for the taxed amount of the expenses as approved, and for the expense of extracting the decree and proportioning the same in accordance with a scheme of apportionment thereof prepared by the clerk in terms of the provisions of section 11 (3) of the said Act 15 & 16 Geo. V., c. 33.

15. Except in the cases specified in the said Act 15 & 16 Geo. V., c. 33, in which the finding or judgment of the Lord Ordinary is declared to be final, any judgment of the Lord Ordinary may be submitted to review by the Division to which the cause belongs by giving in a Note, which must be lodged within twenty-one days after the date of the finding or judgment complained of, and the procedure on that Note shall be the same as in reviewing judgments of a Lord Ordinary in the Court of Session.

16. The clerk shall, on receiving notice of any change of ownership of the lands contained in one entry in the teind roll in respect of which lands a standard charge has been constituted in accordance with the provisions of section 12 of the said Act 15 & 16 Geo. V., c. 33, insert in the teind roll the name of the new proprietor as stated in said notice; such notice may be in the form of Schedule A annexed to the Act 37 & 38 Vict., c. 94, provided always that notice of change of ownership of part only of an entry in the teind roll shall be given effect to by the clerk only where the provisions of section 13 of the said Act 15 & 16 Geo. V., c. 33, are complied with in said notice. 17. Where a standard charge has been constituted on the lands of

any

heritor in terms of the provisions of section 12 of the said Act 15 & 16 Geo. V., c. 33, and the same has been redeemed in accordance with the provisions of that section, or where a stipend exigible from the teinds of any lands of a heritor has been redeemed in accordance with the provisions of section 14 of the last-mentioned Act, the clerk shall, on receiving notice in writing of such redemption signed on behalf of the General Trustees and the owner of the lands the standard charge on which has been redeemed, or of the lands the stipend in respect whereof has been redeemed, make an entry to that effect in the teind roll.

18. An excerpt from a teind roll of any entry or entries therein certified by the Clerk of Teinds shall be received in any Court of Law as sufficient evidence of such entry or entries.

And the Lords appoint this Act to be inserted in the Books of Sederunt and to be printed and published in common form.
