Fraudulent activity in Property transactions

  • Author : Bill Stark - 16-10-2015

Today I gave a talk to the Leo Cussen Property Law Conference 2015 entitled: "Liar Liar - Fraudulent activity in Property transactions." 
The talk covered the recent High Court decision about indefeasibility of title and fraud in Cassegrain v Gerard Cassegrain & Co Pty Ltd [2015] HCA 2, and the recent Supreme Court of Victoria decision of Hargrave J in Perpetual Trustees Victoria Ltd v Xiao Hui Ying and Anor [2015] VSC 21, which deals with fraud and indefeasibility of registered mortgages.
A copy of the paper is available from the Leo Cussen Institute (see: and will be available to subscribers at
