If you have lent money to another person, it may not be advisable to submit a reserve unless this loan is directly for the purchase of the property and is documented in a loan agreement. In addition, an agreement to share the profits from the sale of the property or to recover a debt that is not related to the property is not a reserve interest. A reservation may not be used in summary proceedings by a person who does not have the appropriate interest for the country concerned. The use of a reserve in summary without interest may lead to an injunction for compensation or costs against the sub-reserver. A simple contractual or personal right does not create a reserve interest, unless such a right is linked to the granting of a relevant interest in the land.

TGY Pty Ltd  VSC 451 is a reminder that lawyers must also exercise caution when accommodating reserves on behalf of their clients.
The judge found that the Caveator`s lawyers had issued, on behalf of their client, a reservation in circumstances in which there was clearly no justification for asserting a fair interest in the country. In addition, the judge found that the lawyers had not even seen the documents on which their client`s right to an appropriate interest was based, which showed that the lawyers had acted in deliberate disregard of the facts and the law, which in turn constituted serious misconduct. The judge not only ordered the withdrawal of the retention of title, but also ordered that the Caveator`s lawyers bear the costs of the proceedings on the basis of compensation and that a copy of the judgment be forwarded to the Victorian Legal Services Commission. A reservation is a document that anyone with a legal interest in a property can file with Land Victoria. After filing, a reservation note appears on the certificate of ownership, which indicates to anyone interested in the title that a third party is asserting rights to the property. • the depreciation of the property due to a decline in the real estate market; • the depreciation of the property caused by the fact that buyers are prevented from buying the property due to reserves; • exemplary damages to punish the Caveators for their misuse of the reservation procedure; • interest; • lawyers` fees; • the cost of a cancelled auction.

Legal advice should always be sought before a reservation is issued. If you make a reservation wrongly, the possible consequences and damages that can be attributed to you can be considerable. . . .
