Equitable mortgage by deposit of a Certificate of Title
Dixon, William M. (2005) Equitable mortgage by deposit of a Certificate of Title. The Queensland Lawyer, 26(3), pp. 117-118.
In Theodore v Mistford Pty Ltd  HCA 45, the High Court considered certain principles governing the creation of an equitable mortgage by the deposit of a title deed as first developed by the English courts of equity with respect to old system conveyancing. The decision will be of interest to Queensland practitioners as it concerned the application of these equitable principles to Torrens land regulated by the provisions of the Land Title Act 1994 (Qld) and, in particular, the operation of s 75 of the Land Title Act 1994 (Qld) which provides:
(i) An equitable mortgage of a lot may be created by leaving a certificate of title with the mortgagee (ii) Subsection (1) does not affect the ways in which an equitable mortgage may be created.
