eConveyancing

Electronic Conveyancing?

DON’T BE FOOLED that “conveyancing will be made cheaper!”

Your Real Estate Agent or Mortgage Broker may tell you that you can't do your own conveyancing, this is untrue!

It is your legal right!

THIS Does not affect the DIY user.

Due to all the hype surrounding the introduction of e-Conveyancing, there is a misapprehension that you cannot do your own Conveyancing.

It is your legal right to perform the Conveyancing process yourself. If your financial institution insists that you use the e-Conveyancing process through a Solicitor/Conveyancer, this is incorrect.

If e-Conveyancing is made a condition of the mortgage it is a breach of the ACCC, as you are being deprived of your legal right to do your own Conveyancing.

Even Solicitors/Conveyancers who do not wish to participate in the e-Conveyancing program can still attend settlement and lodge documents manually.
