Torrens Title Subdivision
Residential property subdivision can be done in various ways. In short, subdividing land involves physically and legally turning one piece of land into several pieces so they can be properly built on and used for their intended purpose.
Torrens Title – what is it?
A Torrens Title subdivision is the most common method for recording and registering land ownership for residential land in Australia. When a Torrens Title is issued, one larger lot of land has been divided into two or more separate, single and protected land titles.
When a residential property subdivision occurs in this way, the respective owner gets full autonomy over their own land and doesn’t, for instance, have to answer to Strata Managers or Strata rules. This means that each lot of land is completely independent from the other, usually with no shared facilities.
How did the Torrens system start?
Sir Robert Richard Torrens first implemented the system in South Australia, largely replacing older, troublesome systems of titles. Often, these multiple, older law titles could be lost, causing major problems when land was changing hands. The Torrens Title system created a central registry so that each lot has a unique number, with all transfers of ownership being registered on this single title certificate.
