(b)

vesting the land in the persons named in the order, and (where more than 1 are so named) as tenants in common in the shares specified in the order, for a legal estate in fee simple in the same manner as if the land had been granted to those persons by the Crown; and

giving to the land the status of Maori freehold land.
