Liability of occupier to pay in default of owner
58. (1) If the person to whom the notice mentioned in section 57 has been given, is the owner of the property in respect of which it is given the Corporation may (whether any action or other proceeding has been brought or taken against such owner or not) require the person, if any, who is the occupier or tenant of such property or a part thereof under such owner, to pay to the Corporation instead of paying to the owner the rent payable by him in respect of such property, as it falls due, up to the amount recoverable from the owner under section 57 and any such payment made by the occupier or tenant to the Corporation shall be deemed to have been made to the owner of the property.
(2) For the purpose of deciding whether action should be taken under sub section (1), the Corporation may require an occupier or tenant of property to furnish information as to the sum payable by him as rent on account of such property and as to the name and address of the person to whom it is payable, and if the occupier or tenant refuses to furnish such information he shall be liable for the whole of the expenses as if he were the owner.
