269. Vesting of disclaimed property
Where the disclaimed property is a leasehold interest and an application is made under sub-section (6) of section 535 for an order vesting the property in any person and it appears that there is an under-lessee or mortgagee or holder of a charge by way of demise in respect of such property, claiming under the company, the Court may direct that notice shall be given to such under-lessee, mortgagee or holder of charge, that if he does not elect to accept and apply for a vesting order upon the terms required by the above-mentioned sub-section and such other terms as the Court may think just, within a time to be fixed by the Court and stated in the notice, he will be excluded from all interest in and security upon the property. The Court may adjourn the application for such notice to be given and for such under-lessee, mortgagee or holder of charge, to be added as a party to and served with a copy of the application, and to make , if he sees fit, such election and application as is mentioned in the notice. If at the expiration of the time so fixed by the Court, such under-lessee, mortgagee or holder of charge, fails to make such election and application, the Court may make an order vesting the property in the applicant or other person who, in the opinion of the Court, may be entitled thereto, and excluding such under-lessee, mortgagee or holder of charge, from all interest in or security upon the property.
An order requiring parties interested in a disclaimed lease to apply for a vesting order or to be excluded from all interest in the lease shall be in Form No. 135, and an order vesting lease and excluding persons who have not elected to apply, shall be in Form No. 136.
