I have just wasted an entire day to discover that PEXA cannot support settlements for clients with no last names in Victoria. My client's given name is x y. There is no last name. This issue came about as my purchaser client's bank CBA did not want to sign off on a transfer of land with my client's first name as x and last name as y, even though Certificate of Titles do not distinguish between first and last name.

Please seek to update your system to allow transfers to progress with no last names.
