The ownership of property is concerned with having control over a legal interest. In an historical context the Crown owns all land. However, the owner of a freehold interest is inherently the absolute owner although technically a tenant of the Crown. The Law of Property Act 1925 defines a freehold interest as the ‘Fee simple absolute in possession’. Thus a freeholder may have physical possession and/or be entitled to the receipts of all income from that land.
