 Recorded Webinar: Acting on Urgent Caveat Instructions: Stop, think and think again (professional skills)

23rd February 2021
Duration:  1 hour

There are times when a practitioner receives an urgent request from a client, such as to lodge a caveat. Acting before taking a number of important steps can get practitioners into serious trouble. This session will explore how to effectively and successfully respond to the receipt of urgent instructions, including:

  • How the move to electronic dealings has resulted in greater pressure on practitioners
  • Shifting the risk – practitioner assessments and verifying statements
  • Does your client have a valid claim? Case study: Guirgis v JEA Developments Pty Ltd  [2019] NSWSC 164
  • The role of the “guardian at the gate” – what a practitioner needs to know before lodging a caveat and making representations
  • Consequences for practitioners, including costs orders and disciplinary action
