A caveat is a legal document that prevents any dealings with land (for example prevents the land from being sold or mortgaged). It is a very serious step to take. You should only lodge a caveat if you have received legal advice to do so. If you have no legal right to lodge a caveat, you may be held responsible for payment of costs to another person if the caveat is lodged.
