38. At the end of a period of thirty years from the date of the letters patent, the conditions and restrictions attached to a gratuitous transfer cease to apply, and the transfer becomes irrevocable.
Notwithstanding the first paragraph, every gratuitous transfer of land to a municipality for the construction or improvement of a public road is irrevocable from the date of the letters patent.
This section also applies to all gratuitous transfers effected by the issue of letters patent before 27 May 1987, as if it had been in force on the date of their issue.
