The current COVID-19 (Coronavirus) outbreak presents a number of logistical challenges to industry, particularly to members regarding the in-person, physical lodgement of presently out-of-scope documents.
With this in mind, to support the state’s network at this time, the NSW Office of the Registrar General, NSW Land Registry Services and PEXA are working together to facilitate a temporary solution to lodging paper documents through the PEXA platform. This functionality will be released in two phases, commencing 11 May 2020.
From 11 May 2020, PEXA Subscribers will be able to lodge paper Real Property Act dealings with a Land Title Reference through the COVID-19 Residual Lodgement via the PEXA Platform.
From 25 May 2020, paper documents which don’t have a Real Property Act Land Title Reference or where the Land Title is not valid for electronic lodgement in the PEXA Platform, will be able to be lodged through the PEXA Platform using a prescribed Title Reference.
