Australian Real Estate

The definition of real estate and a financier’s ability to take security over it. Real estate includes:
Freehold Land.
Any registered lease with a duration of over 21 years.
All land in Australia is registered under a system known as the Torrens system. Each State and Territory operates its own Torrens system (including its own register) for land located in its jurisdiction. Registration in the Torrens system creates title to the relevant parcel of land. Consequently, on a sale of Torrens title land it is registration of a transfer, that passes title to the purchaser. The main types of tenure are freehold estates (that is, freehold ownership) & leasehold estates. The relevant State or Territory register records details of the land and any registered interests in that land (for example, mortgages, leases and easements covenant).
An important and fundamental principle of the Torrens system is that the register is paramount, the purpose of which is to save persons from “going behind the register” to investigate the history and validity of the title to the interest in land. Accordingly, the registered proprietor of an estate of interest in land obtains what is known as an “indefeasible” title to its interest. This means title is not defeated by existing defects in title prior to registration or other unregistered interests. Importantly for financing transactions, the registered proprietor includes a mortgagee of freehold title and leasehold title.
