Simply login to your e-Conveyancing Community account on the day and post your question for a quick response from the experts.

We have a number of WA outstanding matters where the Paper title has not issued back to us as Subscriber as requested on the Lodgement Instructions. Our client mortgagee requires a paper title.
These matters are outstanding from August/September/October. Is this delay normal, or has there been a change in WA that no longer will issue paper titles to mortgagees.
Thank you in anticipation.

Please email your query to firstname.lastname@example.org with a list of the CTs (vol/fol) that you are expecting to have issued to you and they will investigate and get back to you.

Is there a plan to allow OSR lodgements via OSR Duties Lodgement to link with PEXA (i.e. not just limited to Revenue Online)? If so, is there an expected date when this will be set up? A number of transactions we work on are not suitable for Revenue Online which at the moment prevents us from using PEXA for these transactions.

Would you mind explaining the change to the WA TAC, per Release 9?

One question we do often get asked is around the scope for lodging caveats against only one registered proprietor where there are two or more registered proprietors on title.
At this point, only caveats impacting ALL registered proprietors on title can be lodged online. Those caveats described above can continue to be lodged in paper post 1 December with the use of the Request to Accept Paper Lodgement Cover Sheet (available https://www0.landgate.wa.gov.au/__data/assets/pdf_file/0010/66538/Request-to-accept-paper-lodgement-...).
You can read the full details of what documents are eligible for online lodgement on Landgate's Electronic Conveyancing page: https://www0.landgate.wa.gov.au/__data/assets/pdf_file/0016/16450/Eligible-documents-for-paperless-c...

Thanks for the question regarding the new TAC changes in WA post Release 9.0. As part of the release, we have updated the Title Activity Check (TAC) in Western Australia to ensure that a positive TAC is displayed only for new activities on the land title that has not been previously returned. This ensures that incoming parties are not having to repeatedly provide approval for activities that were previously approved.
On the day of settlement, if a positive TAC is returned, the incoming parties will only need to ‘confirm settlement execution’ if a new title activity has been returned from the Land Registry for the first time. All subsequent TAC responses received for the same activity will be displayed as no activity against the Land Title.
This change now aligns the behaviour of WA TACs to all other jurisdictions.
You can read more on this on the TAC page in Community: https://community.pexa.com.au/t5/Help-Centre/Title-Activity-Checks/ba-p/49
Hope this helps.

I imagine there would be some easy view-able audit time-line/history for the 'signer' to check and verify before they sign-off?
Would that show up in the new dashboard summary in the case of +ve TAC?

When will Western Australia permit additional terms and conditions to be uploaded to PEXA and attached to a National Mortgage Form being lodged via PEXA?
Queensland, New South Wales and South Australia already permit this functionality. In large finance transactions, mortgages are frequently taken over property in multiple Australian jurisdictions. It would create significant time and cost savings if mortgage terms were able to be uploaded via PEXA and attached to the relevant NMF, regardless of the jurisdiction in which the property was located. This universal approach would align with one of the original reasons for creating the National Mortgage Form, namely to standardise and streamline the process of preparing mortgages across all Australian jurisdictions.
