Electronic conveyancing (eConveyancing) is a more efficient, accurate and secure way of conducting the settlement and lodgment stages of a conveyancing transaction. The Office of the Registrar General is supporting you through the transition to eConveyancing in NSW.
A message from the Registrar General
Get ready for eConveyancing
From 1 July 2018, lawyers and conveyancers will be required to use eConveyancing for standalone caveats and transfers, mortgages, and discharges. Taking steps to get started sooner rather than later with eConveyancing will help you plan and prepare for a smoother transition.
Digital innovation: leading the way
New technology is driving more rapid change than ever before, with every industry going through a digital transformation of some sort.
eConveyancing is part of the NSW Government’s commitment to leading digital innovation. The move to digital has the support of the property, legal and financial industries and is in line with the commitment by the Council of Australian Governments (COAG) to the development of a national electronic conveyancing system.
Many in the legal, conveyancing and banking sectors are also leading the way, having already taken steps to get on board with eConveyancing ahead of the NSW Government’s timeline.
The Office of the Registrar General supports this proactive approach and encourages everyone involved in conveyancing in NSW to transition sooner rather than later.
