Can an employed licensed conveyancer of a law firm digitally sign documents in PEXA?

Hi Heather - Thank you. I have that information and it doesn't say anything about an employed licensed conveyancer in a law firm in NSW (it does in SA & VIC). I rang PEXA yesterday and they said that they could but I have also been told by others that they can't !!

Good point - I assume they would fall into the category of 'non-practitioner employee,' but it would be best to check with the Law Society directly - as the question is regulatory in nature, this is unfortunately not something PEXA can answer.

This was the response from the Law Society !!
The Law Society cannot advise you in this regard. You will need to discuss directly with PEXA.
This is why I have no idea !!

In that case, it might be prudent to check with ARNECC directly, as the guide refers to advice from practitioner regulators.
