Registration FAQs

What do I need to know about registering?

  1. Australian lawyers and conveyancers can join PEXA by registering online. At any stage, you can save your progress and exit the application, allowing you to resume at a later date. If you have any questions, the PEXA Registration team is on hand to guide you through the registration process. 

  2. Anyone can complete the online registration on behalf of your organisation. However, in the final step of registration, contracts will need to be executed by an authorised signatory (that is, someone who is legally entitled to sign on behalf of your organisation).

    Early in the registration process you’ll be asked to nominate a Subscriber Manager. This person will be responsible for administering the account and reviewing important notifications. They will also receive the first Digital Certificate. It’s recommended that you nominate a lawyer or licensed conveyancer who is authorised to sign Land Registry documents. 

    • Organisational details: ABN and ACN (if applicable)
    • Professional details: Relevant certificates or licence
    • Financial details: Direct debit account details, trust account and duty disbursement account details (if applicable)
    • Names of persons to receive Digital Certificate(s)
    • Verification of Identity (VOI)

    Digital Certificates and VOI are industry safeguards that conform with the ARNECC regulatory framework.

  6. Digital Certificates encrypt data, ensuring secure electronic signing of documents and the Financial Settlement Schedule in PEXA. Each Subscriber is required to obtain at least one Digital Certificate. The number of Digital Certificates needed will depend on how many people will be signing documents on behalf of your organisation.

    A Digital Certificate is required for each person who is required to sign in PEXA. The price of Digital Certificates can be found on Pricing page. GST each. Each one is stored on an encrypted USB Token.
