Many people hear about a caveat for the first time in their lives when they’re about to purchase a property. Caveats are a way for potential buyers to express interest in the property and prevent other parties from stepping in and taking it away from you.
Our professionals at Melbourne Conveyancing Group have helped families, business owners, and investors lodge caveats against a property’s title successfully for years, and today, we’re offering you the opportunity to ensure that whenever that property goes up for sale, you’ll be the first to qualify for it.
Caveat is a legal notice lodged to protect your interest in the property. When lodging a caveat, the caveator will obtain a priority interest. The caveat will prevent third parties or the registered proprietor from making transactions involving the title.
In simpler terms, a caveat is a written notice or warning that informs parties who check the Certificate of Title that someone—the caveator-–is interested in the property.
