AMONG THE BATCH of Acts which received the Royal assent on CURRENT TOPICS.
Friday last was the Copyhold Act, 1887, which was the last of
a series of seven Bills on the subject of copyhold enfranchisement MR. JUSTICE CHARLES, on the first day of bis sitting in court, which had been presented to Parliament. It was, we believe, had before him a heavy list, the whole of which would have been considered by a special committee of the House of Lords, and condisposed of but for the length of time taken up by the case of sidering this and the long incubation the subject has undergone, De Bensaude v. De Bensaude. The learned judge rose at a the present measure ought to be free from the defects which marked quarter past five o'clock, leaving ten cases to be disposed of on
some of the earlier proposals. We propose hereafter to consider Friday.
the Act at length, but we may say now that its main provisions are that, on the admittance of any copyhold tenant after the 31st of
December next, the steward must, without charge, give the tenant THE DECISION in the case of Re Robertson (35 W. R. 833) carries a notice informing him of his right to enfranchise, and of the out the construction of the phrase "other documents” in the modes in which the lord's compensation may be fixed. If the Remuneration Order, Schedule II., adopted by Mr. Justice CHITTY steward omits to serve the notice, he is docked of his fees. The in Re R. A. Parker (33 W. R. 541)-viz., that it does not Act enables the lord and tenant to agree in writing on the amount include an abstract of title, and consequently that a solicitor is of the compensation, or to appoint a valuer or valuers to ascertain not entitled to a fee of 1s. per folio for perusing an abstract in lieu it, and provides that they may appoint one and the same person as of the old fee of 6s. 8d. for three brief sheets of eight folios each. valuer. The tenant may, if he chooses, pay the compensation in In Re Robertson a solicitor employed by a client to obtain a loan a gross sum, but, unless the parties otherwise agree, in cases where on mortgage of real estate, made advances on the security of the the enfranchisement is effected at the instance of the lord, and property, after perusing the title deeds, including a will and life where the compensation amounts to more than one year's improved policies. The solicitor charged 1s. per folio for perusing these value, the compensation is to consist of an annual rent-charge documents, but it was held by Day and Wills, JJ., that the charge equivalent to interest at 4 per cent. per annum on the amount of was wrong:
If the 1s. per folio fee is not allowed for perusing the compensation. This rent-charge is to be redeemable by the abstracts, it would seem that á fortiori it cannot be allowed for tenant upon six months prior notice at twenty-five years' purchase, perusing documents of title. The effect of the recent decision is to power is given to limited owners to charge the enfranchised confine the fee of 1s. per folio in respect of “other documents” to land with the compensation money and expenses of enfranchisenew documents which have been drawn by the other side. Mr. ment, and for a lord to charge any expenses paid by him in proJustice Wills, in laying down this restriction, said: “ By apply- ceedings under the Copyhold Acts either on lands settled to the ing the words to documents drawn by an opponent it is possible to same uses as the manor or on the rent-charges arising out of engive them a reasonable and natural construction. In perusing franchisements. Provision is also made for lords who are limited such documents the task of a solicitor is highly responsible, and owners giving a complete discharge for compensation money. there is a possibility, if he does not exercise his utmost vigilence, The compensation payable to stewards on enfranchisements by that he may be led to overlook some provision injurious to his award of the Land Commissioners after the 31st of December client's interest ; but there is nothing in the circumstances under next is prescribed in a schedule to the Act. The Land Comwhich the Solicitors' Remuneration Act, 1881, was drawn to missioners are to frame such a scale of compensation for enfranbuggest that the framers of the General Order meant that there chisement "as in their judgment will be fair and just and will should be a charge of 18. per folio for the perusal of documents of facilitate enfranchisement,” with directions for the lord, tenant, every description." It is certainly odd, if the construction now and valuers ; also a scale of allowance to valuers; but these adopted was that intended by the framers of the order, that they scales are to be "for guidance only, and not to be binding as a did not use the word “ drafts" instead of other documents." matter of law in any particular case.” This provision appears
rather to savour of the is sort of JOSEPH SURFACE Bill, full of high sentiments not carried into practice, an illustration of faith without
works," which Lord CRANBROOK declared was the leading WE DO NOT KNOW whether under-sheriffs are always aware of the characteristic of a predecessor of the present Bill. Section 47 liability they incur in case of the death of the high-sheriff during his introduces the principle of compulsory enfranchisement of all the year of office. The statute 3 Geo. 1, c. 15, provides (section 8) copyholds within a manor, in cases of manors where the fines are that if any high-sheriff shall happen to die, in such case the certain, and in which it is "the practice” for copyholders in under-sheriff shall, nevertheless, continue in office and execute the fee to grant derivative interests to persons who are admitted as same, and all things belonging thereto “in the name of the said copyholders of the manor in respect of such interests.
