A caveat in relation to property is essentially a notice recorded on the title to protect an interest in that land which is not yet registered, or which is not able to be registered.

This article by Alex Milne looks at some of the common circumstances where a caveat is used, including in conveyancing, and in the building industry, and discusses what is involved in obtaining a caveat.
