To challenge a caveat a “warning” must be sent to Leeds District Probate Registry. The Warning document is sent to the person who entered the Caveat and they will be required to enter an “appearance” at the Probate Registry. An appearance does not mean a physical attendance at the Registry merely a response in the correct form.
If an appearance is not entered in response to a warning the caveat will be removed. If an appearance is entered and agreement cannot be reached between the parties for consent to remove the caveat Court proceedings will have to be considered.
Where a person receives a “warning” they should seek legal advice immediately.
