Verification of Identity (VOI) is an identification process that supports the e-Conveyancing compliance framework. Once verified, PEXA network members can collaborate and transact efficiently online, enabling successful electronic lodgement and settlement of conveyancing matters.
The Verification of Identity requirements provide a standard for:
- PEXA to verify the identity of members completing e-Conveyancing transactions on the PEXA platform
- Lawyers and conveyancers to take reasonable steps to verify the identity of buyers and sellers
To complete a VOI when joining PEXA, network members must produce original documents as proof of identity. This could include documents such as an Australian passport, driver’s licence and birth certificate. Find out more about verification documents here.
