When opening a PEXA Workspace, an important step is to verify that the information returned from the Land Registry is accurate. This information will be visible on the Land Title screen.
The good news is, that post opening the Workspace, an automated Title Activity Check (TAC) on the land title will be performed periodically, made possible by the digital integration between PEXA and the respective Land Registry. You will be notified should there be any activity identified on the title.
Sometimes, when activity is detected, the information displayed on the land title screen may require updating. A common example is when the TAC indicates that a survivorship or transmission has been lodged and there has been a change in proprietorship. Note that in this particular situation, the Land Title information requires updating in order for lodgement verification to be successful, and for settlement to proceed. Please note that an Information Re-supply is only required when the change in title particulars will prevent lodgement. So, before you request an Information Re-supply, check your TAC to help you decide if you need one.
Should you request an Information Re-supply, a fee of $5.50* will be debited from your fee paying account as per the Pricing Schedule.
The new PEXA Marketplace is alive and well, offering members in NSW, the ability to purchase a title search through one of our partners – either Equifax or CITEC – with information mapping directly into your PEXA Workspace.
The Marketplace will shortly expand to include additional title search providers as PEXA partners with existing market participants to provide you choice, transparency and efficiency in completing a property transaction, ultimately allowing you to reduce your client’s disbursements.
Login to Marketplace through PEXA Plus using your PEXA login details.
The Marketplace is now live in NSW and will roll out in VIC, WA, SA and Queensland in 2019.
Susanne Mosely, Managing Director, Hunter Legal & Conveyancing talks about her experience in using Marketplace.
We love working with PEXA and are really interested in their growth. We have seen how going digital has benefited our business and clients, through increased efficiencies and better pricing. We are definitely 100% supporters of e-Conveyancing and want to use PEXA more.
Marketplace is so easy and convenient to use. We love the fact that there is transparency in price and that it is competitive as well. It was great to be a part of the pilot programme, to have the opportunity to shape a product that meets both our and our client’s needs. The PEXA team have been very open to the feedback we provided – and have always managed to find a solution. We have been very impressed at how quickly the team troubleshoots and makes changes for smooth, faultless usage.
The SRO will be conducting two webinars next week demonstrating Duties Online and the Digital Duties Form.
Our two free webinars on Wednesday 23 January will give you a great overview of using Duties Online and completing a Digital Duties Form, whether you are new to e-conveyancing or would benefit from a refresher course.
Each year we recognise the superstars of the e-Conveyancing Community by making them Superusers! This year, we want you, the Community, to nominate someone you believe should be rewarded for their contributions.
Our Superusers will once again get the chance to visit the PEXAPlex in Melbourne, participate in Open Day and hang out with the Community team. We had a lot of fun with our Superusers last year, check out this post to see what the 2018 group got up to.
If you would like to nominate anonymously, please message me. Otherwise, comment below who you believe is a deserved Superuser and mention how they made a difference in Community during 2018.
We’d like to thank everyone for their contributions to the Community last year – looking forward to interacting with you all again this year!
As part of PEXA’s latest platform enhancement (9.0.1) we are excited to bring you a new, simplified home page.
The new landing page is designed to cut down unnecessary 'noise', allowing you to see important information at a glance.
After you log in to PEXA, the first screen displayed will be the new home page. Here, you will see your six most recently-viewed Workspaces. Presented as clickable cards, they will be colour-coded based on their status.
This will allow you to easily prioritise Workspaces and help streamline your platform experience. Further, checking your Workspaces on the go will be simple, as the new layout will be mobile-friendly.
The previous home page layout can be accessed from the left navigation menu which is displayed in the original table format, though it will not act as the default landing page.
We hope you enjoy the new view and as always, we look forward to your feedback.
During the upcoming Christmas, Boxing Day and New Year’s Day 2019 public holidays, financial settlement will not be available. However, Lodgement will still be available in Victoria and New South Wales.
A little reminder: When workspaces are linked for Simultaneous Settlement, TAC (Title Activity Check) is being triggered prior to sourcing (5 mins after settlement occurs). This means if something is lodged on the title within any linked workspace, within an hour of settlement and even if a workspace is Ready Ready – it will roll over by 30 minutes until the positive TAC is proceeded with.
With PEXA Release 9 going live on Monday 5 November 2018, the Service Charter, Participation Agreement and Standard Operating Environment Requirements will be updated. You can access clean and marked up versions of these documents via the links and attachments below.
WA-based practice management system, ContactsLaw, has integrated with PEXA. This means that PEXA activities can be completed from within the ContactsLaw software.
The enhancement provides users with a more efficient experience. Information from Contactslaw is automatically sent through to PEXA, removing the need for additional data entry.
Bradley Smith, the Software Development Manager of Contactslaw said the feedback has been positive, “Users find that being able to view and accept workspace invitations through ContactsLaw saves a lot of time.”
December 2018 signals the introduction of mandated electronic lodgement of transfers in WA, and Contactslaw believe the integration will make a significant impact for their users. Bradley said, “As the volume of PEXA settlements increases, so too will the time and cost savings delivered by the software.”
What is integration?
Integration enables your system to communicate directly with the PEXA platform - automatically sending information from your software to PEXA. This reduces the need to manually re-enter data into PEXA. To integrate, a technology communication method called API (Application Programming Interface) is utilised.
With theWestern Australian1 December 2018mandate just around the corner, the Training Team is offering freeTransfer webinars to ensure you can confidently make the transition from paper to electronic conveyancing. The Team will be running multiple sessions showing you how to complete a 4 party transfer from the perspective of both a Proprietor on Title (Seller) and an Incoming Proprietor (Buyer) as well as lodging and withdrawing a caveat.
Registrants may be able to claim one CPD point for their attendance.

We’ve launched a new Help feature which will provide you with easy access to our Help articles and videos. This is based on your feedback to have in-platform help and to avoid clicking between two screens. If you are currently logged into PEXA, please log out and back in to view this feature.
To access this new feature, click on the Help icon located to the right of the screen.
A Help slide out will appear and allow you to search for content or navigate through the topics.
The video content will appear within the slide out. You can maximise this by clicking on the full screen button on the bottom of the slide out.
Over the coming weeks we’ll be adding guided help to this slide out which will walk you through completing your transactions and managing your PEXA account.
We’re keen to hear your feedback so we can continue to enhance the help feature! You can share your feedback below this post, or by sending me a private message.
We're rolling out new help features to the PEXA platform!
