The common law cannot enforce as a proprietary interest the rights of a putative alienee whose title is not created either under a law which was enforceable against the putative alienor at the time of the alienation and thereafter until the change of sovereignty or under the common law.
However, the reference to a pre-sovereignty origin of the right or interest in this passage makes it somewhat uncertain whether a non-Indigenous alienee would be in the same position.
In that situation, the alienee could obtain a property interest in the land but would hold that interest subject to the jurisdiction and laws of the Aboriginal nation.
