APPORTIONMENT ACT 1982

Received Royal Assent: 30 December 1982
Passed: 18 January 1983
Commenced: 18 February 1983
AN ACT
to provide for the apportionment of periodical income.
1 Periodical income to be apportionable

[P1870/35/2 and 3]
(1) Any periodical income shall be considered as accruing from day to day,
in the same way as interest on money lent, and shall accordingly be
apportionable in respect of time.
(2) Where any periodical income is apportioned, the apportioned part of
such income shall be due and payable when the entire amount is due and
payable, and not before.
(3) Where any periodical income is determined by death, re-entry or
otherwise, the apportioned part of such income shall be due and payable
when the next entire amount would have been due and payable, and not
before.
2 Recovery of apportioned income

[P1870/35/4]
(1) Subject to subsection (2), any person and his successors (including the
successors of a person entitled to periodical income determining on his
death) shall have the same remedies for recovering an apportioned part
of periodical income as they would have had for recovery of the entire
amount, if they had been entitled thereto.
(2) Where any continuing rent is apportioned, the entire rent shall be due
and payable to the person who would have been entitled thereto if it had
not been apportioned, and such person shall account for the apportioned
part of such rent to the person entitled thereto.

(b) any periodical income where it is expressly stipulated that no
apportionment shall be made.
