The Last Chapter in Queensland Property Law Updating and Consolidation?
AbstractIn June 1989, the Queensland Law Reform Commission issued a Working Paper dealing with the subject of the Real Property Acts in Queensland. The paper was circulated widely throughout the legal profession in Queensland, particularly, among the solicitor's branch, and to other interested parties, and invited comment. In mid 1988, the Commission issued a very brief discussion paper containing, draft new sections 44 and 44A designed to replace the existing provisions of the Real Property Acts appertaining to the concept of indefeasibility of title and the related powers of the Court to rectify the Register,4 together with associated statutory definitions and a very brief commentary. The issue of such a discussion paper, in advance of the main working paper, is an unusual course of action for the Commission, but was felt to be justified in this case by the unique importance of the concept of indefeasibility of title, and its centrality to the whole Torrens system of registration of title to land.
