If you require lodgement of a caveat over a property Scott Legal can provide this service to you.
A caveat is used to protect your interests, so that the property cannot be dealt with unless you agree. Reasons you may lodge a caveat over a property include:
- Purchase of property – until settlement
- Breakdown of relationship – until financial settlement is complete
- Loan agreement – such as loan given by you (eg to friend or family member)
- Trading terms/debt recovery – to guarantee payment of a debt. This option is only available if your supply terms expressly allow this or it has been agreed by the proprietor. If you require further advice in this regard, please contact us to discuss.
