eConveyancing Update June 2018

Electronic lodgment of standalone property dealings mandated from 1 July 2018

On 1 July 2018, the next phase of the NSW Government’s transition to wholly electronic conveyancing (eConveyancing) commences. 

From 1 July 2018, all standalone caveats and standalone transfers must be lodged electronically. All mortgages, discharges of mortgages, refinances, or any combination of these, must be lodged electronically. This includes lodgments by non-authorised deposit-taking institutions, legal practitioners, conveyancing professionals and the general public.

Where an exception to electronic lodgment is applicable, a ‘Conveyancing Rules Exception’ form must be submitted to NSW LRS with the relevant dealings. 

See also Exemptions for electronic lodgment of mandated dealings and caveats 

The Office of the Registrar General (ORG) has issued a Circular, detailing these mandated changes and providing information on exceptions to these requirements. The Circular, Lodgment of standalone Transfers, Caveats and Mortgage Transactions from 1 July 2018, is available on their website.    

More information

The Conveyancing Rules that cover these changes and any conveyancing rule waivers are available from the ORG website: http://www.registrargeneral.nsw.gov.au/publications-and-rules.

Enquiries about these changes may be made to the Office of the Registrar General via email at org-econveyancing@finance.nsw.gov.au.
