I an acting on behalf of an incoming mortgagee where the property that will be mortgaged is unencumbered - I've prepared the documents and the other party's legal representative has been added as a participant. We will have possession of the certificates of title shortly - the question is: does our office sign the mortgage or does the mortgagor's legal representative do so? And if our office needs to do it, how do we do it (as I cannot see an option for us to sign on the document).
Hi @amynhan if you're representing the incoming mortgagee then someone at your firm creates and signs the mortgage. If you can't see a Sign option, it could be the mortgage is not yet in prepared status (has not had all the relevant data completed and had a successful Lodgement Verification), which means it is not yet ready for Signing. Alternatively, if you are not a document signer for your organisation, you won't see the Sign option.
Don't forget you can't digitally sign the mortgage until you have the Client Authorisation completed, have verified the mortgagee's identity, have verified the mortgagor's identity (or confirmed the mortgagee has done so) and have possession of a paper mortgage on the same terms as the PEXA mortgage, which has been signed by the mortgagor.
