Pardon me, but allodial is only method of transfer of title which is a grant by inheritance. You can only hold title in allodium if you posses the right of inheritance.
Allodial: Free; not holden of any lord or superior; owned without obligation of vassalage or fealty; the opposite of feudal.
Allodium: Land held absolutely in one's own right, and not of any lord or superior; land not subject ot feudal duties or burdens. All estate held by absolute ownership, without recognizing any superior to whom any duty is due on account therof. [Black's 5th]
If title is held in allodium, then how to you expect any municipality to "grant" this form of title? Your title recognises no superior, why would you want recognition from a municipality?
(Here is a good point as to the limits of using Black's to understand old common law processes. Black's is a martial law dictionary.)
