Settle multiple properties online in real time

About e-Conveyancing

What is e-Conveyancing?

e-Conveyancing minimises the manual processes and paperwork associated with property settlement by enabling lawyers, conveyancers and financial institutions to transact together online.

It enables you to lodge documents and complete financial settlements electronically.

e-Conveyancing also reduces the risk of errors and delays, giving you and your clients greater certainty of successful, on-time settlement.

The origins of e-Conveyancing

e-Conveyancing is an initiative championed by the property industry to simplify and digitise the complex process of property exchange. Instigated by the Council of Australian Governments (COAG), it’s built around an online network of members supported by PEXA.

To ensure the integrity of the network, the Australian Registrars’ National Electronic Conveyancing Council (ARNECC) has developed a regulatory framework, under which PEXA operates. Industry safeguards include the Participation Agreement, Verification of Identity and Digital Certificates.

e-Conveyancing is currently live in six states across Australia. PEXA’s network includes lawyers, conveyancers, financial institutions, Land Registries and the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA), in addition to industry bodies and sponsors.

PEXA is pleased to be a member of UDIA whose purpose is to inform and engage government and industry members, enabling better business decisions in relation to the delivery of new apartments and residential housing. 

PEXA is committed to supporting the property industry as it transitions towards a 100% digital future. For more information on industry transition, please contact us.

Implementation Options

Property developers can choose between three different models when transacting through the PEXA network. We recommend you review your contracts of sale and include e-Conveyancing special conditions relevant to the jurisdiction of the property that will settle.

Model 1: A lawyer or conveyancer acts on your behalf
Sign a Client Authorisation Form and give your lawyer or conveyancer permission to act on your behalf in PEXA.

Model 2: A Panel Member acts on your behalf
Sign a Non Transacting Panel Master Agreement and be visible on PEXA’s online member database. You can choose which lawyer(s) or conveyancer(s) represent(s) you, giving you both control and flexibility.

Property developers who choose this model do not need to comply with the eligibility criteria in the Model Participation Rules.

Model 3: Act on your own behalf
Register as a Principal Subscriber and represent yourself or use a Panel Member to represent you in PEXA. Property developers who choose this model must meet the eligibility criteria in the Model Participation Rules and sign a Participation Agreement. You’ll also need a Digital Certificate to perform encrypted electronic signing. 


Contact PEXA for more information about becoming a PEXA member or the three implementation models.
