About the Webinar

The complexities in identifying and describing a caveatable interest have long occupied the courts, and further complications have resulted from the move to electronic registration. This session will examine recent developments in caveat law and registration, with a focus on the ethical challenges that can trip up practitioners. Key issues covered include:

  • What constitutes a “caveatable interest”? A review of the grounds for lodging a caveat and its intersect with ethical obligations
  • Understanding key professional obligations under the Electronic Conveyancing National Law
  • Lodging caveats wisely – the who, what, why and how
  • When to engage counsel to provide an opinion on lodging caveats
  • Ethical dilemmas: opting for an injunction over a caveat – navigating the way forward
  • Spotlight on:
    • Withdrawing a caveat without instructions
    • Terminating the retainer where a caveator will not take a practitioner’s advice
  • Making mistakes when lodging caveats - lessons from Brose v Slade [2022] NSWSC 1785; Giurgis v JEA Developments Pty Ltd [2019] NSWSC 164
  • Unpacking the disciplinary consequences for practitioners lodging and maintaining improper caveats over land
  • Recent examples, including:
    • Victorian Legal Services Commissioner v Souki
    • Youssef v NSW Legal Services Commissioner
