Caveat Notices - Notifying the Registrar by way of a Form 14 - General Request
Customers are reminded that a Form 14 - General Request must be deposited by the usual lodgement methods to notify the Registrar of the following caveat matters:
- A Caveatee's Notice under s. 126(2) of the Land Title Act 1994 - notifying the Registrar of the service of a Caveatee's Notice to the Caveator (within 14 days of the giving of the notice) under s. 126(2) of the Land Title Act 1994.
Refer to s. 126(2) of the Land Title Act 1994 and the Land Title Practice Manual [52-0020]. See also [11-0120] and [11-0190].
- A Caveator's Notice of Action - notifying the Registrar that a proceeding has been commenced to establish the interest claimed under the caveat (within specified time limits).
Refer to s. 126(4) of the Land Title Act 1994 and the Land Title Practice Manual [52-0010]. See also [11-0130] and [11-0190].
Notifying the Registrar of the above caveat matters using other methods (e.g. by e-mail or letter) is not sufficient to comply with the relevant requirements under the Land Title Act 1994 and therefore cannot be accepted by the Titles Registry.
