39 Rights And Liabilities Not Affected By Reissue Of Letters Patent

In This Volume

39 If letters patent that incorporate a municipality are revoked and others issued,

  • (a) the revocation or issue does not bar or discharge a right, claim or demand of or against the municipality, or a pending action or proceeding, and the municipality remains as liable and has the same rights and interest as if the letters patent revoked were valid and not revoked,
  • (b) the municipality is deemed to have been a corporation from the date of the letters patent originally incorporating it, and
  • (c) a registration in a land title office in the name of the municipality is a registration in the name of the municipality under the new letters patent.
