Drafting and Preparation of Caveats

We can provide legal advice on whether you have the right to lodge a caveat as security for loans and other debts and prepare all necessary documentation for the registration of caveats over properties.

We can also advise on whether parties have the ability to lodge a caveat over a property.

Our rates and fixed prices are lower than the prices charged by many Perth Commercial law firms because we own our offices so we don't pay the exorbitant St George's Tce rent that many commercial law firms do.  

Further information can be found here regarding our fixed fees.  We offer fixed fees for drafting and preparation of caveats.  Our fixed fees for drafting and preparation of caveats is from $600.00 plus disbursements.

Contracts can include clauses that allow for the lodging of a caveat.  These clauses must be very clear and must create a specific interest in land that will allow for a caveat to be lodged.  There are also many other circumstances that can allow for the lodging of a caveat however very clear legal advice needs to be obtained on which circumstances do, and which circumstances do not, allow for the lodging of a caveat.  If a caveat is lodged without proper cause then it can be challenged.
