272.12. If the local municipality has not transferred an immovable to the school service centre on the expiry of the time limit prescribed in the first paragraph of section 272.10, the school service centre may itself acquire an immovable situated in the territory of that municipality in the sector delimited in the school service centre’s space requirement plan at that municipality’s expense. However, if no local municipality has been designated in accordance with the second or third paragraph of section 272.10, the immovable may be acquired in the territory of any of the municipalities referred to in those paragraphs.
The municipality in whose territory the immovable is situated must reimburse the amount corresponding to the cost of acquiring the land to the school service centre.
The other conditions and procedures governing the acquisition of an immovable by a school service centre or the reimbursement by a local municipality of the cost of acquiring the immovable are prescribed by a government regulation made under section 452.1.
An immovable acquired under this section is deemed to be usable for its intended purpose.
