167.— (1) Where NAMA or a NAMA group entity has entered on and taken possession of land in accordance with section 165 and the Court is satisfied that—

(a) the several estates or interests in the land have not been conveyed or transferred to NAMA or the nominated NAMA group entity,

(b) it is necessary, in connection with the purposes for which NAMA has been authorised to acquire the land compulsorily, that the acquisition of the land should be completed, and
