Electronic Conveyancing

Electronic Conveyancing (eConveyancing) allows practitioners and financial institutions to lodge and settle conveyancing transactions in an electronic workspace provided by an Electronic Lodgment Network Operator.

This electronic platform enables parties:

  • collect transaction information and have it checked and verified for completeness and compliance
  • prepare instruments and reports to register changes in property ownership and interests
  • settle financial transactions, including payment of duties, taxes and disbursements
  • comply with the tax and duty requirements of revenue offices
  • lodge instruments with Land Services SA and receive confirmation of their lodgement and registration.

The only approved Electronic Lodgement Network Operator in South Australia is Property Exchange Australia Pty Ltd (PEXA).
