Noxious Weeds Act 1993 No 11
Repealed version for 4 June 2015 to 30 June 2017 (accessed 22 August 2017 at 19:22)
Part 6 Section 60
60   Expenses to be charged on land
(1)  Any expenses payable by an owner or occupier of land to a local control authority in connection with a weed control notice and subsequent control of noxious weeds on the land are a charge on the land.
(2)  The charge ranks on an equal footing with a charge on the land under any other Act but takes priority over any other charge or encumbrance.
(3)  The charge does not affect:
(a)  the estate of the Crown in land owned by the Crown, or
(b)  the estate of a Crown lessee if the lease is granted after the expenses were incurred.
(4)  The charge does not affect a purchaser for value in good faith who made due inquiry at the time of purchase but had no notice of the liability. A purchaser who has obtained a certificate under section 64 is taken to have made due inquiry.
(5)  The provisions of this section have effect despite anything contained in section 42 of the Real Property Act 1900.
