Probate Rule 78 provides that the Registrar may not order the issue of a Grant whilst an effective caveat exists.

For information on the rules, forms and fees relating to caveats please visit the Frequently Asked Questions page and/or speak to a lawyer.

If you require a copy of a caveat please file a search request, the form is available on the Searches page.

Important information

A caveat runs for six months from the date it is entered, unless Probate Rules 2017 rule 80 applies.  (For more information see Part 11 of the Probate Rules 2017 and/or speak to a lawyer).

Once a caveat lapses, a grant may issue.

The Registry does not give notice that a caveat is about to lapse. The caveator is responsible for renewing a caveat if they wish to do so.
