We will advise and prepare the
registration of a caveat.


A Caveat is a warning or caution registered against the Certificate of Title and will prevent any further dealings with the property.  

Caveats on a property

In South Australia, caveats can be lodged over land if you have an equitable (‘real’) connection with the land in question.

It is not possible to lodge a caveat over another person’s land ‘simply 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 rates and taxes

We understand that all circumstances are different.
