Roles help determine your responsibility in a Workspace and the tasks and documents you can create and sign.
PEXA Role examples:
Incoming Mortgagee: You are creating the Workspace to request the transfer of a mortgage and the associated titles from another financial institution.
Mortgagee on Title: You possess the title based on holding a mortgage.
Consentor (NSW): You are giving the permission to process the transaction as you are the controlling party of the title.
CT Controller (VIC): You are giving the permission to process the transaction as you are the controlling party of the title.
Incoming Proprietor: You are representing the purchaser in a transfer transaction.
Proprietor on Title: You are representing the vendor in a transfer transaction.
Incoming Caveator: You have grounds to register a caveat on the title(s).
Caveator on Title: You have grounds to withdraw a registered caveat on the title(s).
Applicant (VIC/NSW/QLD): You are lodging a Priority Notice for a paper transaction(s).
Encumbrancee on Title (SA): You are representing the party with an encumbrance registered on the title(s).
Incoming Encumbrancee (SA): You are representing the party intending to register and encumbrance on the title(s).
When you first create a Workspace, you assign yourself a role. Alternatively, if you accept an invitation to the Workspace, the role specified on the invitation is your current role.
For Example - Refinance: A Subscriber, Flinders Bank, wishes to initiate a mortgage refinance for a new customer that has walked into their city branch. Flinders Bank creates a Workspace in PEXA with the role of Incoming Mortgagee. In that role, PEXA automatically assigns tasks to create a new National Mortgage document. The Incoming Mortgagee must then invite the bank who holds the current mortgage to the Workspace, Blue Bank. Blue Bank is invited as Mortgagee on Title and asked to create a discharge of their mortgage.
