Recovery of Money

Liability of occupier to pay in default of owner
257.(1) If any such notice as is referred to in section 256 has been given to any person in respect of property of which he is the owner, the Board may require any occupier of such property or of any part thereof to pay to it, instead of to the owner, any rent payable by him in respect of such property, as it falls due, up to the amount recoverable from the owner under section 256:
Provided that, if the occupier, on application made to him by the Board, refuses truly to disclose the amount of his rent or the name or address of the person to whom it is payable, the Board, may recover from the occupier the whole amount recoverable under section 256.
(2) Any amount recovered from an occupier instead of from an owner under sub-section (1) shall, in the absence of any contract between the owner and the occupier to the contrary, be deemed to have been paid to the owner.
