Paperless conveyancing is revolutionising the way Australians buy and sell property. Will you be part of that revolution?
There is a nation-wide move towards electronic conveyancing, with the NSW Government having announced plans to accelerate the transition to electronic conveyancing and progressively phase out paper certificates of title. This initiative falls in line with the move towards paperless conveyancing across Australia, with Victoria, Western Australia and South Australia all recently announcing new measures to transition conveyancing to the digital channel.
We toured through 32 different locations to demonstrate the latest in electronic conveyancing technology and provide a forum for practitioners to learn from experts, share their opinions and spark debate amongst their peers.
Attendee's saw how you can now conduct property transactions without touching a single piece of paper. From mobile VOI through to smart digital contract preparation, signing and exchange, InfoTrack's technology allows for seamless electronic conveyancing right up until settlement - cheaper, faster and more efficient than you ever could imagine. We'd like to thank all those that took the time out to join us and for making this such a huge success.

InfoTrack and Lawyers Weekly recently conducted an online survey of Australian legal practitioners to gain insight into industry sentiment towards adopting new conveyancing technologies. In addition to the survey, we brought together property lawyers and tech experts to discuss the latest developments in technology. The results of the survey and roundtable point to an overall willingness to embrace new technology and an acknowledgment that the pace of change is continuing to pick up speed.
