Electronic conveyancing (or eConveyancing) is mandatory in Queensland from 20 February 2023. This means that certain instruments and other documents for property transactions will need to be digitally prepared, signed, settled and lodged using an Electronic Lodgement Network (ELN), by a subscriber, unless exempted.
This includes transfers, mortgages, caveats (new, withdrawal), priority notices, and transmission by death.
If a property transaction has been executed by a party before the mandatory commencement date, the transaction can still be paper lodged.
The required instruments or documents can be lodged by subscribers with either of the two approved ELN operators in Queensland – Property Exchange Australia Limited and Sympli Australia Pty Ltd. Please note, not all required instruments are available through each ELN and each party to the transaction must use the same ELN.
Mandatory eConveyancing will deliver a consistent service delivery experience for all the parties involved in property transactions in Queensland.
