There may be situations where the name of the Vendor (Proprietor on Title) has changed since they were registered on the title. For example; they get married, they revert to their maiden name or they change their name by deed poll.
This change in name needs to be entered into PEXA in order to lodge documentation at the Land Registry.
Maxwell and Margaret Black are selling their property. When they purchased the property, Margaret’s name was registered on title as Margaret Black. Between then and now she reverted to her maiden name, Margaret Smith.
