E Pluribus Unum - Out of Many, One

In a recent decision, 400 George Street (Qld) Pty Ltd v. BG International Ltd [2010] QCA 245 (400 George Street), the Queensland Court of Appeal confirmed that the facts and agreements differ on the following basis: Normally, the transfer of property property is registered with a land registry in the United Kingdom. In most parts of the United States, deeds must be presented to the Deeds Protocol, which serves as a register to be registered. An unregistered deed may be valid proof of ownership between the parties, but it cannot affect third party claims until they are disclosed or registered. A local statute may impose a period for unregistered acts to be invalidated for third parties, at least with respect to acts of intervention. According to the common law, the property was proved by an unbroken chain of securities deeds. The Torrens title system is another way to prove ownership. Introduced for the first time in South Australia in 1858 by Sir Robert Torrens, and then taken over by other Australian states and other countries, ownership under the title of Torrens is proven by the possession of a certificate of ownership and the corresponding inscription in the land registry. This system eliminates the risks associated with unregistered wear and control and fraudulent or otherwise incorrect transactions. It is much easier and less expensive to manage, which reduces transaction costs.

Some Australian real estate is still transported with a chain of securities – usually real estate held by the same family since the 19th century – and they are often referred to as the “old system” of deeds. The special period depends on the law under which the state subject to the act (the act should indicate the law of the state under which it is determined): in 400 George Street (Qld) Pty Ltd v. BG International Ltd [2010] QCA 245, the Queensland Court of Appeal stated that the words used in the document “executed as an act” and “in carrying out that act” unequivocally expressed the intention that the document was a document and not an agreement. In the simplest case, an act is a promise that is not supported by reflection. Therefore, the parties` intention to be bound by the act cannot be inferred as it would be if it were a contract. Differences in legitimacy separate acts and agreements, with court actions becoming enforceable to resolve disputes, while agreements most often refer to reciprocal agreements between two parties. The main difference between an agreement and an act is that you do not have a mandate to hire a dead person.
