CAVEATS

In South Australia caveats can be lodged over land at the Land Titles Office but to do so you must have an equitable ('real') connection with the land in question.

It is not possible to lodge a caveat over another person's land 'just because they owe you money'

Some of the equitable reasons for which a caveat can be lodged are:

  • Unregistered mortgages
  • Unregistered leases
  • Contract of Sale and Purchase of the land which is still to settle
  • Claims of contributing to the land by a party to the relationship
  • Beneficiary to a Will
  • Government Authorities for unpaid taxes and rates

As all circumstances are different, please contact Optima to discuss your individual situation.
