How Property Law works in AustraliaIn Australia, all property dealings are covered by the Torrens Title system which means that each State Government in Australia holds a register of the land holdings within that State and transactions affecting that land. Each piece of property is recorded on a title. That title sets out the owner of the land and all other interests affecting that land such as leases and mortgages. If an interest is not recorded on the title, subject to some very limited exceptions, a subsequent owner of the land does not have to recognise those interests.
