100 Escheat

(1) Property vested in any person upon any trust or by way of mortgage shall not escheat or be forfeited to the Crown by reason of the attainder or conviction for any offence of the trustee or mortgagee.
(2) Property so vested shall remain in the trustee or mortgagee or survive to his or her co-trustee, or vest in his or her legal representative as if the attainder or conviction had not taken place.
(3) This section shall not prevent the escheat or forfeiture of any property vested in any trustee or mortgagee so far as relates to any beneficial interest therein of the trustee or mortgagee, but the property, so far as relates to any such beneficial interest, shall be recoverable in the same manner as if this Act had not been passed.
