A new chapter on water rights has been added to the By Lawyers reference guide 1001 Conveyancing Answers for Queensland.
The new content covers water allocations, water licences, overland flow, water trading and searching the register. Note that the Registrar of Land Titles is also the Registrar of Water Allocations.
By Lawyers do not currently offer a full commentary on the increasingly complex and valuable rights attaching to the usage, allocation and trading of water, but the new content in 1001 Conveyancing Answers assists as a starting point for Queensland practitioners who are called upon to advise clients in relation to the rights attaching to water in various circumstances, whether in the context of property transactions, property development, or stand-alone water trading transactions.
Helpful interactive links are also provided in the new content to allow users to quickly access the detailed information available on the Business Queensland website.
For LEAP users, the new matter types now available in Queensland for Rural Law/Agribusiness, which include Water licences and Water allocations, contain all relevant Land Registry forms relating to water rights. These new matter types are available via Other Areas of Law in the Browse tab from within any LEAP matter.
