What is Verification of Identity (VOI)?
Verification of Identity (VOI) is an identification process, enabling businesses to ensure that they are dealing with the correct individual.
Australia’s current VOI legislation
Legislation surrounding VOI differs by state in Australia. In NSW, SA, QLD, WA and VIC there are VOI requirements set in place that apply to solicitors and conveyancers. Under these requirements, the identity of an individual should be verified in all conveyancing transactions, so that lawyers and conveyancers know that the individual has authority to deal with the land.
NT, TAS and ACT don’t currently have any legislation requirements in place.
However, despite the fact that legislation isn’t compulsory for all industries, actively practicing your due diligence should be of top priority and gives you a competitive advantage.
