Land Ownership

Land Ownership

Overseas clients acquiring Australian farm properties are entitled to direct and secure freehold ownership of the land asset and the infrastructure upon it. This removes the risk associated with investing in many other countries where land tenure is not legally defined nor enforceable. It is widely regarded that Australia has the most secure land ownership system of any nation in the world and the stable system of government in Australia ensures this will remain the case.

The Australian Foreign Investment Review Board (FIRB), who regulates overseas investments in Australia, currently allows individual investors to secure aggregated farm properties worth up to AUD $243 million without prior consent or approval from the Board. Entities associated with foreign governments will need FIRB approval at any level of investment but for all other investors the restrictions are modest.

Many of the worlds largest food exporting nations have severe and fluctuating restrictions on foreign ownership but this is not the case with Australian farmland.
