Hi Colleagues, Has anyone had to get a VOI and CAF done by a client located in New Zealand (in relation to a Queensland property)? I know one option is to track down an Australian Consular Office Witness but are there any other recognised options in terms of Identity Agents? It appears they would have to meet the various insurance requirements in Schedule 6 of the Queensland Participation Rules. The 'deemed compliance with insurance rules' only seems to apply to Australian Legal Practitioners or Law Practices etc (which makes it fairly hard work to gather the relevant insurance information from any proposed Identity Agent in NZ). Is there an equivalent of 'Australia Post' (or similar) in New Zealand (i.e. a recognised 'Identity Agent')? Has anyone used someone (perhaps a law firm) in NZ before? Thanks in advance! Cheers, Josh Fox

I anticipate PEXA will be taking further steps to address this issue. I received this response from PEXA on my matter: Our technical team have confirmed that this is an example of PDB-7118, which is a display defect that shows your firm as having signed off on the Form 20 trust details incorrectly. They have confirmed that this is a display issue only since the rendered document format is set by the Land Registry. When signing off on the Transfer, it is my understanding that you are signing off on the data which has been entered into the Transfer and making the certifications listed on the signing page, not signing off on the 'rendered document' itself. In this sense, the 'rendered document' is not the equivalent of a paper Transfer. Hope that may be of assistance to anyone else who comes across to this issue before it can be ironed out etc.
