General Law titles
General Law titles are based on a common law system, which originated in England.
The General Law title system relies on a 'chain of deeds' to prove ownership. This 'chain' is made up of all documents since the land was sold by the Crown, and is still valid proof of ownership.
Conversion from General Law to Torrens title is a relatively simple process and is recommended by Land Victoria. The conversion process usually results in a title with a State Government guarantee of registered interests.
