TOGNETTI, Luis Alberto. Colonial Titles and Full Land Ownership in the Pampean Córdoba Region in the late XIX Century. Mundo agrar. [online]. 2014, vol.15, n.30. ISSN 1515-5994.

This article analyses the use of encumbered titles to seize lands in the Argentinean Pampean region in the late XIX century. The approach was to focus on a well-defined time-space setting: lands which came into ownership by the use of Colonial Land Leasing and Certificates of Claim in the Rio Cuarto District; and to study in depth the judicial, notarial and land registry documentation. The study showed that a third of the District’s area came into full private ownership thanks to those colonial titles - a phenomenon which explains the origin of the immensely large estates in the south of Cordoba. Among the conclusions we can draw, it is worth noting that by having encumbered property rights legitimized, a few people suddenly became important land owners.
