E-Conveyancing: what is it?

Hello there!

Have you ever found yourself buried under a pile of paperwork while buying or selling a property? If yes, then you're in for a treat. Welcome to a new age where property transactions are becoming as simple as a click of a button. This is the era of electronic conveyancing, or e-conveyancing. This is the next big thing in the world of property transactions.

Here in New South Wales (NSW), e-conveyancing has transformed the traditional ways of conducting property transactions, making them more efficient and user-friendly. From 11 October 2021, the Real Property Amendment (Certificates of Title) Act 2021 (NSW) came into force, meaning all land dealings must be lodged electronically rather than in paper form, and paper Certificates of Title have all been cancelled. This has a big impact on how conveyancing transactions are completed in NSW.

But what exactly is e-conveyancing, and how does it work? Let's dive into it.

What is E-Conveyancing?

E-conveyancing is the digital process of buying or selling property. In essence, it's a paperless approach that aims to simplify the process and speed it up by doing away with physical paperwork and manual transactions.

How Does E-Conveyancing Work?

E-conveyancing in NSW is made possible through secure online platforms that allow lawyers, conveyancers, and financial institutions to transact together seamlessly. With e-conveyancing, the entire process from preparing documents to settling the property can be handled digitally. This puts an end to the days of running around to multiple offices and waiting on slow mail delivery.

The Advantages of E-Conveyancing

E-conveyancing isn't just about going digital; it's about making the conveyancing process more streamlined and efficient. Here are some of its key benefits:

  1. Efficiency: The whole process is faster and more streamlined, resulting in quicker settlement times.

  2. Accuracy: The chances of human error, such as misplaced documents or typos, are significantly reduced.

  3. Convenience: The progress of transactions can be monitored anytime, anywhere.

  4. Security: Digital platforms are designed to be secure, providing peace of mind.
