Land tenure and availability

NT freehold land

Freehold land, sometimes referred to as a grant in fee simple or estate in fee simple, means the government has passed all interest in the land, other than resources, onto the owner.

An example of freehold land is the average house block in a city or town.

Freehold land is not affected by native title.

An application for a title on NT freehold land is lodged with the department and is subject to the Mineral Titles Act or Petroleum Titles Act.
