PEXA is pleased to present PEXA Minor Release 15.1.0, scheduled for business go live 07 February 2022.
UPDATE: There is no expected outage during the rollout of this release.
There are times when the Mortgagee on Title mistakenly assigns handling of the vendor surplus to themselves when it should be assigned to the Practitioners representing the Proprietor on Title.
Practitioners representing theProprietor on Title can now redirect the handling of surplus away from the Mortgagee on Title by clicking Assign to me on the Financial Settlement Summary screen. Upon clicking, Practitioners will be asked to confirm the vendor surplus redirection. By confirming, the Mortgagee’s vendor funds line item is automatically removed.
Important Note: The Mortgagee on Title remains signed even when the Mortgagee vendor funds line item is removed.
The Mortgagee on Title is advised of this line item removal via email, on-screen notification, and the History screen.

We have created a new setting to let Practitioners (who represent Proprietors on Title) specify if they want the Financial Settlement Statement to be unsigned when the Mortgagee on Title’s Auto calculated vendor funds line item is updated.
A Subscriber Manager can locate this setting in Administration Tools > Maintain Auto Calculation.
The options for unsigning the Settlement Statement are:

When creating a new Workspace in the role of Incoming Mortgagee or Mortgagee on Title, PEXA can identify if a land title is used in another Workspace. If one already exists, the subscriber can choose to Join the Workspace. Joining a Workspace minimises duplicate Workspaces and increases efficiencies by removing the wait time for an invitation and improving the readiness of a Workspace.
To join a Workspace, the subscriber must select the check box to confirm their relevance to the transaction.
A banner will display on the Workspace Summary screen to notify other participants that a party has joined the Workspace.
The banner will remain for each subscriber until they opt to clear the banner and clearing is not mandatory.
The Join Workspace feature is available for the following roles:
If any other roles create a new Workspace and PEXA identifies that the land title is used in another Workspace, it will display the following screen:

From this release, Incoming Mortgagees can sign their Mortgage before Lodgement Verification. This means that you’ll no longer have to wait for other participants in the Workspace to progress their documents to ‘Prepared’ before signing off on your Mortgage.

It’s time-consuming to coordinate and re-propose a Settlement Day once it has failed to settle on the scheduled date. To make it easier to update a Workspace Settlement Date and Time, we have moved the Set Settlement Date link, so it’s no longer located within a cog but displays as a button on the Financial Settlement Schedule screen.

We've updated the Settlement Completion Email notification based on user feedback to clarify that settlement funds are yet to be disbursed although Settlement has been completed. We’ve also tweaked some formatting to make it easier for you to read.

As part of the 15.1.0 release, we will deliver the GET operation for the Settlement Schedule API. The endpoint allows you to retrieve settlement schedule source and/or destination line items for a given Workspace.
PEXA’s Financial Settlement Schedule (FSS) is a collaborative tool that contains electronic financial transaction directions for all source and destination line items. All payments are disbursed automatically at settlement, so you’ll no longer spend time waiting for cheques to clear.
The Settlement Schedule API offers a collection of operations that you can perform on the Settlement Schedule within a Workspace.
Here’s a snippet of what the line items look like in PEXA Exchange:
