Frequently Asked Questions

What is digital conveyancing or e-conveyancing?2019-07-05T20:36:35+10:00

Digital conveyancing became mandatory in NSW on 1 July 2019; boom! 

This is a fantastic development for you and for us. All you really need to know is that conveyancing lawyers have finally entered the 21st century – no more pesky bank cheques and paper in NSW.

Sadly, the ACT’s not there yet.

You can read more about digital conveyancing on the PEXA website.

How and when do I pay my deposit?2019-07-04T17:37:12+10:00

Usually you won’t pay your deposit until after we have reviewed the sales contract and you have obtained unconditional finance approval. When it is time to pay, it is usually easiest to EFT the deposit directly to the sales agent.
