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  HCA 2, and the recent Supreme Court of Victoria decision of Hargrave J in Perpetual Trustees Victoria Ltd v Xiao Hui Ying and Anor  VSC 21, which deals with fraud and indefeasibility of registered mortgages.
A copy of the paper is available from the Leo Cussen Institute (see: www.leocussen.vic.edu.au) and will be available to subscribers at www.greenslist.com.au
