111 Interests in General land of deceased Maori

(1)

On application by the administrator of any Maori who has died possessed of any freehold interest in General land, the court may make an order vesting that interest in the administrator or in the person entitled to succeed to the interest under the will or on the intestacy of the deceased.

(2)

For the purposes of an application under subsection (1), the court may, without further inquiry, accept the certificate of the applicant that the person named in the certificate is entitled to succeed to the interest.

(3)

The making of a vesting order under this section shall not absolve the administrator from any liability incurred by the administrator in respect of his or her duties; and, for the purposes of determining any such liability, the making of the vesting order shall be regarded as if it had been a conveyance of the interest by the administrator to the person in whom the interest is vested by the court.
