Title 46 - PROPERTY
Section 46:7-2 - Deed of conveyance
46:7-2. Deed of conveyance
46:7-2. Where any conveyance of real estate has been, prior to April 6, 1915, made, executed and recorded, in which conveyance it shall appear that the persons therein named as grantees have taken the title to such real estate in behalf of or in the interest of any unincorporated religious association, society, meeting, congregation or organization, upon condition that the real estate so granted and conveyed shall be held in trust for any specific uses and purposes, and such association, society, meeting, congregation or organization shall have thereafter become incorporated as a religious society under the laws of this State, any surviving person or persons named in such conveyance as a grantee may, by deed of conveyance, containing a proper recital, convey the real estate mentioned in the original conveyance to the religious association, society, meeting, congregation or organization, in behalf of which or in whose interest title to the same was taken, in its present corporate name. If there shall be no such surviving grantee, the oldest adult child, or adult grandchild if such child be deceased, of such last surviving grantee may make the deed of conveyance herein provided for.
Any deed of conveyance, made by any surviving grantee or grantees, or oldest adult child or adult grandchild of the last surviving grantee, shall be as valid and effectual in law as if made and executed by the grantees named in such original conveyance, and the title to such real estate shall thereby vest in the incorporated religious association, society, meeting, congregation or organization, as effectually as if the same had been incorporated at the time of the original conveyance and had taken title to such real estate directly in its corporate name.
