(4) There shall not, after the commencement of this Act, be any merger by
operation of law only of any estate the beneficial interest in which would
not be deemed to be merged or extinguished in equity:
Assignment of debts and choses in action

(5) Any absolute assignment or assignment by way of security, by writing
under the hand of the assignor (not purporting to be by way of charge
only), of any debt or other legal chose in action, of which express notice
in writing shall have been given to the debtor, trustee, or other person
from whom the assignor would have been entitled to receive or claim
such debt or chose in action, shall be, and shall be deemed to have been
effectual in law (subject to all equities which would have been entitled to
priority over the right of the assignee if this Act had not passed), to pass
and transfer the legal right to such debt or chose in action from the date
of such notice, and all legal and other remedies for the same, and the
power to give a good discharge for the same, without the concurrence of
the assignor: Provided always, that if the debtor, trustee, or other person
liable in respect of such debt or chose in action, shall have had notice that
such assignment is disputed by the assignor or any one claiming under
him, or of any other opposing or conflicting claims to such debt or chose
in action, he shall be entitled, if he think fit, to call upon the several
persons making claim thereto to interplead concerning the same, or he
may, if he think fit, apply to the Court for permission to pay the same
into the Court, to be dealt with according to the rights of the several
persons interested therein:
Stipulations not of the essence of contracts

(6) Stipulations in contracts as to time or otherwise, which would not before

become of the essence of such contracts in a Court of Equity, shall receive
in all courts the same construction and effect as they would have
heretofore received in equity.
