A PEXA fee is charged to each Subscriber in a Workspace upon successful completion of a transaction through PEXA. The fee will vary based on the type of transaction being completed.
For example, if you’re acting for the outgoing proprietor in a property transfer, you will pay the transfer title fee.
For all the details on fees, please refer to our Pricing page on our website. You'll also be able to download a PDF version of the most current fees.
The fee includes:
Lodgement support services: pre-population of registry data, lodgement verification and automatic title activity checks
Digital signature security
Document lodgement with the land registry
Stamp duty verification
Lodgement gap cover; cover under the signed Representative Subscriber Participation Agreement (PA) whereby PEXA assumes responsibility for any loss incurred (subject to conditions set out in the PA) when an intervening dealing impacts registration of a covered dealing
Electronic settlement booking
Electronic third party disbursements
Where a transaction involves financial settlement (such as a Transfer), the fee is automatically added as a line item in the Financial Settlement Schedule. There is no cost if a Workspace is abandoned and the settlement is not completed in PEXA. Where the transaction does not involve financial settlement (such as a caveat), the PEXA fee is direct debited from your nominated account.
Lodgement Fees Lodgement Fees are charged by Land Registries when documents are lodged. These fees are provided by the Land Registries when Lodgement Verification is performed.
Fee changes explained
If a fee change is introduced on 1 July, what about Workspaces prepared before 1 July but settling/lodging after 1 July ? Workspaces with Financial Settlement: PEXA fees will automatically update in the Financial Settlement Schedule for Workspaces settling on or after 1 July when Lodgement Verification is triggered. Please allow for these updated figures in their calculations. Workspaces without Financial Settlement: PEXA fees will be assessed based on the time of the last Lodgement Verification (these include Caveats, Settlement Notices, Mortgages and Discharges).
