The Land, Explosives and Other Legislation Amendment Act 2019 QLD Makes Land Tiltle Certificates Legally Void
By Normal Party
It came to my attention that Queenslanders can no longer prove ownership of their real estate by means of a Land Title certificate, even if they have one. All land title certificates were cancelled by the above act. The new Section 215 in the Land Title Act 1994 states:
Certificates of title cease to be instruments
(1) On the commencement, a certificate of title—
(a) ceases to be an instrument under this Act; and
(b) ceases to be evidence, conclusive or otherwise, of the indefeasible title for the lot for which it was issued.
The above amendment takes all the evidential power away from landowners and gives it to the State. The State could hypothetically alter your records, illegally, or a hacker could, and you have no way of proving ownership unless your ownership rights were reinstated by a Court. Equally significant is the fact that this amendment also allows the State to prevent you from selling or buying property unless you comply with additional terms related to digital identity certification, which could possibly be further restricted on the basis of your vaccination status, for example. Moreover, the State could unilaterally sequester/expropriate your real estate in case of Public Debt default and transfer your title to the Creditors.
