Application for Preparation of Partial Lapsing Notice by a Registered Interest Holder

This page aims to help you complete an electronic Application for Preparation of Partial Lapsing Notice by a Registered Interest Holder dealing form. This form is used as an application by a registered interest holder (such as a mortgagee, lessee or chargee) for the Registrar General to prepare a notice relating to the partial lapsing of a caveat for service on the caveator pursuant to section 74I Real Property Act 1900.

Examples of how this application may be used include where the caveat is qualified to include dealings under section 74H(5) Real Property Act 1900 and the applicant wishes to only partially lapse the caveat to allow specific dealings to be registered. For instance, a registered mortgagee may be applying to lapse a caveat on title to enable the registration of a second mortgage to the same mortgagee.

Once an application has been lodged, NSW LRS will prepare a notice to the caveator of proposed lapsing of the caveat. This notice is sent directly to you in duplicate either by mail or by email to the nominated address. Accompanying the notice will be detailed instructions on how to correctly serve the caveator. 

After the caveator has been served with the notice, you or your Client are then required to provide evidence of this service back to NSW LRS in the form of a statutory declaration.
 
Once the caveator has been served they have 21 days from the date of service of the notice in which to apply to the Supreme Court of NSW for a Court Order to extend the caveat.
 
Where the above does not apply, please refer to one of the below applications:

​NOTE: This form must not be used where the claim in the subject caveat was made pursuant to the Criminal Assets Recovery Act 1990 or if the caveator is the NSW Crimes Commission. Such caveats cannot be lapsed.

For an application under section 74I, a dealing or plan adversely affected by the caveat must have been lodged.

To avoid requisitions, please ensure that the Application for Preparation of Partial Lapsing Notice by a Registered Interest Holder dealing form is lodged immediately after the incoming dealing. This is so that the “incoming dealing number” is allocated and can be entered in the “Incoming Dealing” field.

Once satisfactory evidence of service of notice to lapse the caveat has been received by NSW LRS, the application cannot be uplifted or withdrawn.
