There will be exemptions for documents where it is still necessary to lodge in paper, including a transitional period for inflight transactions. More information about exemptions will be made available on this page soon.
As additional documents become electronically enabled in the future, the Registrar-General will notify industry through the issue of a Notice to Lodging Parties (NTLP). A transition period will be provided before these new documents are also mandated for electronic lodgement.
To assist practitioners to transition from paper to electronic lodgement, training will be made available. Details about training and support, and where they can be accessed, will be made available on this page soon. In the interim, practitioners may like to contact the ELNOs to find out how they can assist their transition.
Since the introduction of eConveyancing in South Australia in 2016, the Office of the Registrar-General has undertaken significant formal and informal stakeholder consultation about the future of eConveyancing. Particularly, in 2019, the Registrar-General consulted widely with industry, including through field visits, and concluded that majority support exists for mandating eConveyancing.
Feedback received prior to this initiative through formal consultation remains available for your information:
