The Latin-origin word indicates a notice requiring the court or officer to abstain from proceeding with an action without considering to hear the person lodging the caveat out.


Where an application is about to be lodged or has been lodged in a litigation or proceeding initiated or is about to be lodged in a Court, any person requesting the right to appear before the Court at the hearing of such a request may provide a caveat concerning it.
