A caveat is a notice to the Registrar of Titles and is lodged on the Certificate of Title of a specified property. It has the effect of preventing any transfer of the property to a third party or registration of further borrowings on a property which would affect the interests claimed by the person lodging the Caveat. In Family Law proceedings a Caveat is a useful tool to protect the interest of one party in a property which is registered in the sole name of the other party.
