From 3 August 2020, electronic conveyancing takes a big step forward in South Australia.
From that date, electronic lodgement of the following documents with Land Services SA will be mandatory:
- Withdrawal of Caveat
- Discharge of Encumbrance
- Transmission Application
- Application to Register Death by Survivor
- Surrender of Lease
- Surrender of Underlease
- Transfer of Mortgage
- Transfer of Encumbrance.
There are now two Electronic Lodgement Network Operators (ELNOs) active in South Australia – Sympli and PEXA. Sympli have been approved for transfers, caveats, withdrawal of caveats, mortgages and discharge of mortgages in SA. Practitioners can use either or both for their electronic conveyancing requirements.
