In electronic conveyancing a client will not be able to access the electronic lodgment network to sign an instrument or document. A Client Authorisation is required to give the client’s conveyancer or lawyer authority to sign the instrument or document on the client’s behalf.
When is a Client Authorisation Required?
A Client Authorisation is required whenever a lawyer or conveyancer represents a client in a transaction in an electronic lodgment network, except where the lawyer or conveyancer is preparing and lodging a caveat or, in those jurisdictions that have them, a priority notice.
How is a Client Authorisation Completed?
A Client Authorisation is completed by the client and the conveyancer or lawyer. Once complete, it is signed by the client or its attorney or agent as a granting of that authorisation.
