Removal of caveat

    (1)     A registered proprietor to whose interest in land a caveat relates may apply to the registrar-general to have the caveat removed.

Note 1     A fee may be determined under s 139 (Determination of fees, charges and other amounts) for lodgment of an application to remove a caveat.

Note 2     If a form is approved under s 140 (Approved forms) for an application, the form must be used.

registrar-general shall—

        (b)     not less than 14 days from the date of service of the notice, remove the caveat from the register, unless the court otherwise orders.

        (a)     give notice to the caveator that he or she believes that the caveator's interest has been extinguished and that he or she intends to remove the caveat from the register; and

        (b)     not less than 14 days from the date of service of the notice, remove the caveat from the register, unless within that time—

              (i)     the caveator shows to the satisfaction of the
registrar-general that his or her interest has not been extinguished; or

              (ii)     the court otherwise orders.
