General Law Land

General Law Land is land that was sold by the Crown prior to 1862 and has not yet been brought under the Torrens system of title that operates for land in Victoria. General Law land is based on Deeds and no certificate of title exists.


The Titles Office is no longer charging for conversion at it seeks to have General Law land converted. If your property is still General Law land, or is subject to a General Law Warning, Prior Law can assist you. We are experienced in General Law land conversion pursuant to sections 14 and 15, together with removals of survey warnings pursuant to section 26P of the Transfer of Land Act.
