The requirement to 'Start a Proceeding' to prevent the lapse of a caveat
Dixon, William M. (2007) The requirement to 'Start a Proceeding' to prevent the lapse of a caveat. The Queensland Lawyer, 28(3), pp. 120-121.
Section 126 of the Land Title Act 1994 (Qld) regulates whether, and if so, when a caveat will lapse. While certain caveats will not lapse due to the operation of s 126(1), if a caveator does not wish a caveat to which the section applies to lapse, the caveator must start a proceeding in a court of competent jurisdiction to establish the interest claimed under the caveat within the time limits specified in, and otherwise comply with the obligations imposed by, s 126(4).
The requirement, in s 126(4), to “start a proceeding” was the subject of judicial examination by the Court of Appeal (McMurdo P, Holmes JA and MacKenzie J) in Cousins Securities Pty Ltd v CEC Group Ltd  QCA 192.
