Right now, in NSW, conveyancers and lawyers lodge around 84 per cent of all possible dealings electronically. This includes more than 80 per cent of transfers.
We are now just weeks away from the 1 July 2019 mandate—when all mainstream conveyancing dealings must be lodged electronically—whether they are standalone or in combination—for example, a typical property transaction involving a discharge, transfer and mortgage.
If you are a practitioner receiving instructions to act on a sale or purchase of property on behalf of a client, it is critical from now to make sure you prepare your dealings for electronic lodgment if you think the matter will settle after 1 July.
In these last weeks leading up to this milestone, please do not hesitate to contact ORG if you need support.
We will also be out on the road talking to practitioners across regional NSW and in Sydney. And we will continue to update our website with resources and information to support your transition. You can find statistics, including a breakdown of subscriber uptake by area code, on our statistics page. Here’s a few more resources that can help right away:
