Is it possible for me to act for the purchaser of a property, where they wish to pay "cash" (IE no mortgage) if I do not have a Trust Account and are in Vic where we are not permitted to have a Source Account.
Are banks willing to be a party to the transaction to supply funds from the purchaser's accounts.

It is possible, however the funds will need to be provided by another practitioner who runs their own Trust Account. You might have another firm that you have a good relationship with or reach out to an agent who will allow you to use their Trust Account (usually for a fee). You can then invite them into the PEXA workspace in the same role as you and they will be able to add the Source funds.
They don't need to represent a party or create a document, but they will need to accept the settlement date and time and sign off on the Source funds and settlement schedule.
Hope this helps!
