Electronic Conveyancing In Queensland? Not Yet.

The much touted roll out of electronic conveyancing Australia wide has been much slower than expected, in particular in Queensland.

All the other major States have established implementation timeframes and all property transfers in New South Wales, Victoria and Western Australia will be fully digital by August 2019.

So far, nothing has been heard from the Queensland Titles Office and it is likely that there will be two different conveyancing systems operating in Australia to the detriment of everyone concerned. Until this is rectified, conveyancing clients and their lawyers in Queensland will be materially disadvantaged and it is to be hoped that the Titles Office and the Queensland Government can quickly fall into line with the other States.
