I have completed my first lost title application through pexa and was lodged on the 30/07/2019 with Land Registry.
Does anyone have any idea how long it will take to be completed?

I need to lodge a Lost Title Application in relation to a deceased Estate (Application by Legal Personal Representative not done) and am unsure how to go about this. Are there any help cards available for this topic yet?
Can these transactions be done in one workspace or does it need to be two different ones?
Any guidance or assistance would be helpful...

I have completed my first lost title application, just waiting on Land Registry to complete. I think you would need 2 workspaces. You would need to do the lost title application then the ALP afterwards.
I opened the workspace as proprietor on title with no financial settlement, did all the usual then in the documents page there is a dropdown to application for lost title. You will also need to upload the following in support:
1. Statutory declaration from the owners
2. Last issue search
3. Statutory declaration from any other person involved that may have had the title
4. Application for lost title
5. Agents appraisal as to the value of the property
6. Copy of fairly recent rates showing the value of the property.
You need to link these and then you can sign and lodge. I don't know how long it takes as I lodged mine on the 30/07/2019 and the summary says it is lodged but not completed. Hopefully it won't take much longer and I will let you know once it has been completed.

Can you please advise how long it did take ( I hope you are not still waiting) and what notification/communication you received from the titles office?
Does something return in PEXA to alert you?
I am keen to know as I too have completed a lost title application.

I lodged the application on the 30/07/2019 through PEXA and rang the titles office on the 16/08/2019 as it was just still sitting there. The titles office informed me that there were requisitions. We received a letter from them on the 20/08/2019 and the only requisition was the fees as there is no facility in PEXA to pay. We sent the cheque the same day and received the new title on the 29/08/2019.
Just be aware that after you lodge that you will need to get the dealing number and either wait for the requisition with the fees and send a cheque (they don't have facility to pay by EFT either).
Bottom line is, allow about a month from lodgment to receiving the title and don't forget to telephone the titles office to get them to send the requisition as soon as possible.
It was okay and not the hardest thing I have done, so good luck.

Any time you get a replacement title, it does have a new volume and folio number as they destroy (in theory) the old one, so, yes, it did have a different volume and folio.
