Topic: Real MOORS Talk about The Torrens title register & Birthrights with DM Sheik Karriem Mohammed Bey
"Land titles is a form of Torrens or government guaranteed land registration system. In a Torrens system, the titles register mirrors all currently active registrable interests that affect a particular parcel of land.
Torrens Title is a simplified system of transferring title to land which was introduced by Robert Torrens in South Australia in 1858. The method involved filing a judicial proceeding that determined the owner of the land, which was recorded on an Original Registration Certificate maintained by the Torrens administrators. Under this system, the state guarantees title. An examination of the registrar's records could quickly determine the status of title, a substantial improvement over past systems.
The Chicago fire of 1871 destroyed Cook County real-estate records. As Chicago and Cook County were expanding rapidly, providing an adequate verification of title was difficult. In 1897, the Illinois legislature provided an answer by establishing the first Torrens Title Act in the United States.
