The Society is seeking feedback on members’ use of eConveyancing and their views on the proposed mandate, including timeframes.
Queensland first introduced voluntary eConveyancing in 2013 and since then practitioners have adopted eConveyancing at a time which suited their practice. More than 70% of relevant Queensland property transactions are now lodged through eConveyancing platforms.
The Department of Resources is consulting on a proposed regulation to transition Queensland to mandatory eConveyancing for certain documents. The mandated transactions include transfer of titles, mortgages, caveats, and priority notices. It is proposed the regulation will be made mid-2022 and commence in January 2023.
