The NSW Government’s new e-conveyancing program will commence on 1 July 2018, aiming to increase the proportion of electronically lodged documents. By the 1/7/2018, all stand-alone transfers, caveats and mortgages must be lodged electronically and paper titles will begin to be phased out. The change will be facilitated by the network Property Exchange Australia (PEXA), and the Office of the Registrar General is holding workshops to help with the transition to the new system.

The NSW Government has committed to e-conveyancing for the State by July 2019, as it eliminates much of the human risks of error such as misplaced or incorrectly signed documents, immediately transmits settlement funds and saves time for lawyers and conveyancers.
