Freehold Land

Freehold land is land over which the Crown has granted an interest.

The freehold interest is the least restricted interest in land and is usually known as 'ownership' of land. Unlike leasehold, the land is no longer called Crown land after the freehold interest has been granted. The Crown cannot put conditions on the use of the land like it can with Leasehold. There may be some restrictions on how the land can be used because of other laws (such as local government laws). The terms 'freehold' and 'fee simple' mean the same thing and are usually both called 'ownership' of land.
