601.     Private improvement companies Acts.

All the private Acts incorporating improvement companies1 are in practically the same form as the Improvement of Land Act 1864, and contain substantially identical provisions as to:


    (1)     the persons who, as landowners2, may obtain advances;


    (2)     the proceedings leading to a provisional order, and ultimately to an absolute order charging the land with a rentcharge payable for a term of years3; and


    (3)     the priority of the rentcharge, and the remedies for recovering it, and other minor matters4.
