Description:

Philip examines caveats against dealings under the Transfer of Land Act.  He discusses proceedings by the Legal Services Commissioner against solicitors concerning caveats, caveat removal procedures, and tests for caveat removal.  He breaks the topic of caveatable interests down into caveats related to legal interests, equitable interests and trusts, sale of land, building works, and charges including solicitor’s charges.  He then proceeds to unsupportable caveats, balance of convenience, costs including costs against solicitors, claims for compensation and injunctions against caveating.  He concludes with general advice to lodgers of and opponents to caveats.
