Home buyers and business will save time and money when engaging in property transactions, under electronic conveyancing reforms announced this week by the NSW Government.
Following extensive industry consultation, the Government has committed to a detailed timetable for the introduction of paperless conveyancing. By July 2019, all standard property transactions in NSW will be conducted electronically, and all Certificates of Title will be phased out in favour of e-Titles.
E-conveyancing is a COAG initiative intended to provide a national electronic conveyancing system throughout Australia. NSW was one of the leading states to introduce e-conveyancing in 2013. The benefits to home buyers and business include:

The Office of the Registrar General held information sessions across NSW in January and February with more to come. Further information including the implementation timetable is available at www.lpi.nsw.gov.au.
