Caveat lodgement and removal

Caveat lodgement and removal

Need a caveat lodged or removed? No problems. Austral Legal can most likely help and may well be able to do so for a fixed fee.

However, whilst some caveats can be simple, others are far more complex. Some caveats that appear simple enough are in fact complex. As such, getting good advice in relation to whether, for example, you have an interest that can support a caveat being lodged against a property, is important and should always be done before lodgement if possible. If you get it wrong and lodge a caveat which you later must remove, then you may be liable to pay the other party’s costs – which can easily run to thousands of dollars.

As such, it is likely to be worth discussing your circumstances with us in our SmartMove initial 30-minute discounted consultation to determine your next steps. Beyond that initial consultation, we may well be able to offer you fixed fee pricing for any legal services which you require regarding caveats.
