Consultation on proposed regulation to mandate eConveyancing
Have your say on the 6-week consultation on the proposed regulation to mandate electronic conveyancing (eConveyancing) (PDF, 203.8KB) in Queensland by early 2023.
eConveyancing allows instruments and documents needed for property transactions to be digitally prepared, signed, settled and lodged using an Electronic Lodgement Network (ELN).
Queensland first introduced voluntary eConveyancing in 2013, in accordance with the National Federation Reform Council’s (former Council of Australian Governments) Intergovernmental Agreement for a seamless national economy, including a national electronic conveyancing (eConveyancing) system.
The roll-out of voluntary eConveyancing allowed the conveyancing sector to adopt electronic conveyancing practices or maintain traditional lodgement practices.
Queensland’s conveyancing professionals have embraced the greater efficiencies and security of the ELN, with more than 70% of relevant property transactions being lodged through eConveyancing networks.
Queensland’s transition to mandatory eConveyancing is the next step to deliver a consistent service delivery experience for all the parties involved in the property transactions.
The consultation paper is seeking feedback on:
- a new Land Title Regulation 2022 that will specify classes of instruments or other documents that must be lodged electronically through the ELN – the mandated transactions include transfer of titles, mortgages, caveats, and priority notices
- the application of the mandate to eligible subscribers under the participation rules.
- exemptions to mandatory eConveyancing, including self-represented, internet outages, natural disasters, if title is not electronically tradeable.
Have your say
Provide your feedback on the consultation by 5pm Friday, 6 May 2022.
