Public Lands (PBL) CHAPTER 46, ARTICLE 2
§ 14. Time of performing conditions of grant. 1. The commissioner of
general services may, unless otherwise provided, fix a reasonable time,
not less than one year, for the performance of conditions by the
grantees of lands, including lands under water, directed to be granted
on the performance of conditions. If such conditions are not performed
within the time limited, the persons entitled to any benefit under such
grant shall forfeit all right to and title in the premises. If the
commissioner, after having caused an inspection to be made of the lands
granted, determines that the conditions contained in the letters-patent

fixed by the terms of the grant, the commissioner may, for good cause

such condition is to be performed, not exceeding three years.

2. The commissioner may, in his discretion, upon application of the
grantee or his successor in interest, by order, alter, amend or cancel

including lands under water, if satisfied by the reason or proof
submitted that such alteration, amendment or cancellation of condition
or conditions is just and is not detrimental to the interests of the
