Supreme Court Rules 1970
Current version for 6 January 2017 to date (accessed 19 August 2017 at 11:49)
69   Duration of caveat
(cf former Part 78, rule 63)
(1)  A caveat under this Division takes effect when it is filed and, unless the Court otherwise orders, lapses after 6 months.
(2)  The Court may extend the duration of a caveat.
(3)  Despite subrules (1) and (2), in any proceedings on an application for the grant of probate or administration in relation to a will that comprises or includes an informal testamentary document, a caveat concerning the informal testamentary instrument lapses when the caveator becomes a party to the proceedings.
 Rule 72 (2) provides that, unless the Court otherwise directs, the caveator is to be a party to the proceedings.
