Allodial Land Title

The foundation of this nation was real property ownership. That’s why the settlers came here. To insure private ownership of land, the nation’s founding fathers made it unlawful for government to own land except for the ten square miles of Washington D.C., and such as may be needed for erection of Forts, Magazines, Arsenals, dockyards, and other needful buildings. (The Constitution)

When an American fulfills the requirements to obtain a “Land Patent” the patent is assigned by and under the hand and seal of the President of the United States, under Act of Congress.

Fictitious entities, like trusts, corporations, etc. cannot obtain land patents except by express act of congress. An example of congress granting land through patents to fictitious entities is the railroad grants made to compensate the railroads for building railroads across America.

The Land Patent is the only form of perfect title to land available in the United States. Wilcox v. Jackson, 13 PET (U.S.) 498 10 L.Ed.
264

In America today people think they own their land, but unless they have the Land Patent on the land they do not own it. Most people today obtain “Real Estate” by contract and then on fulfillment of the contract they transfer control of land by “Warranty Deed”.
