Information technology has also rapidly evolved in recent years and property law is currently in transition to completely digital (electronic) conveyancing.
Zenith Legal is a proud registered subscriber of PEXA (Property Exchange Australia) and we have successfully settled purchases and sales using the digital platform.
The traditional conveyancing process for property transfers (purchases and sales) involves paper and manual processes which means that settlement (when property title changes hands) occurs in person whereby representatives for the purchasers, vendors and financial institutions exchange money and transfer documents. Transfer documents and mortgages are then lodged for registration with the Land Titles office and it takes 2 – 4 weeks before the purchaser’s name is noted as the registered owner on title of the property.
What does the introduction of electronic conveyancing mean for you as the purchaser or vendor?
The introduction of electronic conveyancing means that settlements will occur online via a secure platform whereby the representatives of the purchasers and vendors (us being your solicitor), banks and the Land Titles office transact together to enable settlement to occur online. It removes the need to physically attend settlement and allows for a quicker transmission of settlement funds. It also provides for more efficient and secure registration of transfer documents reducing the risk of fraud and errors. The transition to digital conveyancing also means that the Land Titles office will no longer issue paper certificate of titles.
Both methods of conveyancing being traditional and electronic are currently used in New South Wales and Queensland with the transition to electronic conveyancing being scheduled to become compulsory in the coming year.
This is why cannot substitute experience when it comes to property transfers. It is one of the biggest transactions of your life and it needs the care and attention of an experienced and qualified solicitor.
