I am trying to do a change of name in VIC. This is not part of a transaction i.e. refinance or purchase, I just want to change the name of the existing proprietor.
Is this possible as all the other discussion points on PEXA community seem to revolve around changing the name as part of another ongoing transaction.

Change of name is not available as a standalone instrument and for now will need to be prepared and lodged in paper.
The current instruments available to be lodged in Victoria are: Discharge/Mortgage, Transfer, Caveat/Withdrawal, Transmission, Survivorship and Priority Notice. A list of available instruments is in the Service Charter which is updated when new instruments are introduced.
Please let us know if you have more questions!

I am just wondering if we still have to lodge a Title Change of Name document in paper with the VIC LTO or if it can now be attended to in PEXA?

This can now be conducted in PEXA. Please find a link to the PEXA Residual document process here https://community.pexa.com.au/t5/Help-Centre/Residual-Documents-Help-Centre/ba-p/14746
Please also find a Land Registry guide on transactions available for electronic lodgement here https://www.propertyandlandtitles.vic.gov.au/forms-guides-and-fees/electronic-lodgment/key-documenta...
I hope this helps.
