SC Code § 27-15-50 (2012) What's This?

If any lessee of the Catawba Indian lands, being in possession, shall not have it in his power to deposit the lease under which he holds, as required by Section 27-15-40, by reason of its loss or otherwise, such person shall file in the office of the Secretary of State a notice of his intention to apply for the issuing of a grant and shall publish such notice in one or more of the newspapers of the county in which such land is situated for at least three months before the time of such intended application. Such notice shall set forth the cause of the inability of such person to produce such lease and shall be verified by the oath of the applicant. And such grant shall thereupon issue if the person applying be otherwise entitled thereto, provided, that if any other person shall, within five years from the issuing of such grant, produce a lease of the premises so granted, such grant shall thereupon become null and void.
