In certain cases trustees and personal representatives could have exercised the powers to grant mining leases1 conferred on a tenant for life2 under the Settled Land Act 19253. Trustees authorised by statute to grant mining leases of separate properties, held upon different trusts, may not grant one lease of both properties4.
As from 1 January 1997 no new settlements can be created under the Settled Land Act 19255.
