Creating, processing and withdrawing a caveat electronically is easy with PEXA. Simply follow the steps to complete your transaction.
On this page, you’ll learn how to:
Create and lodge a caveat online.
Login and create new workspace
Important: In R11.0.0, we're going to remove the Actions Cog button from the Participants and Documents screen. This affects the navigation path to select action items on these screens. We will update the help articles soon to reflect these changes.

Type in your Subscriber Workspace Reference. This is your matter number or a unique reference of your choice.

Select your Workgroup. This will default if you are part of one Workgroup only.
Note: Multiple land titles can be added to a Workspace (up to 20 per Workspace).
Review the Land Title
It is important to review the Land Titles screen to ensure the information returned from your Land Registry into PEXA is as you expected. To do this:
Select Land Titles from the left hand side navigation.
Review the land title details returned from the Land Registry, such as the property address, proprietor, property description, registered mortgage(s), caveats, dealing numbers etc that are currently on the title.
Note: If you have multiple land titles you can add them here.
Create Party Details in the Participant
Select the party you wish to represent in PEXA.
Navigate to the Participants screen from the left hand side navigation.
Click Create Party.
Select I Represent this Party.
The role will default to Incoming Caveator.
In Party type, select Individual.
Enter Party details, including Party Type, Date of Birth and Current/ Future address. Note: All parties affected by the Caveat must have address details entered against their Party record via the Participants screen.
Repeat this procedure for each party you are representing.
Note: If an information icon appears next to a party's name, this indicates that the party is missing some information. Select Edit Party to update the party's details.
Create New Caveat Document
Click Documents on the left hand side navigation.
Select Create Document.
Select the Caveator Party record.
Confirm the correct Land title(s) are selected.
Select the Registered Proprietors affected by this caveat and add their address.
Select the Estate or Interest Claimed.

You will notice that the caveat and the lodgement instructions have both been created. Once the documents have successfully verified, the Document Status will automatically move to Prepared and Successful status.

Lodge caveat with your Land Registry
You are now ready to submit the caveat for lodgement with your Land Registry.
From the Actions column select Submit for Lodgement
When a lodgement case is received by the Land Registry, a dealing number is provided for the caveat. PEXA will return a status of Lodged for the lodgement instruction. Once examination is completed by the Land Registry, the status of the caveat returned to PEXA will be Registered. The PEXA auto refresh occurs every 10-15 seconds after verification and lodgement.
Note: You may have to manually refresh to progress the screen from Unregistered to Registered.
Also, the Workspace status is now at Complete and moves to the completed folder in PEXA from the Active Screen on ‘your dashboard’. To view this, navigate to the Workspace Summary screen in the Completed folder.
