Effect of caveat lodged under section 74F

74H Effect of caveat lodged under section 74F

(1) Subject to this section, while a caveat lodged under section 74F remains in force:
(a) the Registrar-General must not, except with the written consent of the caveator:
(i) record in the Register any dealing, or
(ii) grant any possessory application, or
(iii) register any delimitation plan, or
(iv) cancel the recording of any easement, or
(v) extinguish any restrictive covenant,
if it appears to the Registrar-General that the recording of the dealing, the granting of the possessory application, the registration of the delimitation plan, the cancellation of the recording of the easement or the extinguishment of the restrictive covenant is prohibited by the caveat, and
(b) the caveat does not have the effect of prohibiting:
(i) the recording in the Register of a dealing, or
(ii) the granting of a possessory application, or
(iii) the registration of a delimitation plan, or
(iv) the cancellation of the recording of an easement, or
(v) the extinguishment of a restrictive covenant,
except to the extent that the recording of such a dealing, the granting of such an application, the registration of such a plan, the cancellation of the recording of such an easement or the extinguishment of such a restrictive covenant would affect the estate, interest or right claimed in the caveat.
(2) Where a caveat lodged under section 74F purports to protect a subsisting interest within the meaning of section 28A in land described in a qualified folio of the Register, the Registrar-General shall not cancel the caution recorded in that folio.

(4) Where, at the time when a caveat is lodged under section 74F to protect a particular legal or equitable estate or interest in land, a dealing which relates to the same land has been lodged for recording in the Register and is in registrable form, the caveat does not prohibit the recording in the Register of that dealing.
(5) Except in so far as it otherwise specifies, a caveat lodged under section 74F to protect a particular legal or equitable estate or interest in land, or a particular right arising out of a restrictive covenant, does not prohibit the Registrar-General from recording in the Register with respect to the same land:

(j) a vesting or dealing effected in accordance with:
(i) an order of a court, or
(ii) a provision of an enactment of this State or the Commonwealth,
being an order or enactment which, expressly or by implication, requires or permits a recording to be made in the Register, notwithstanding that the caveat has not ceased to have effect,
