Jim’s Conveyancing Conducts First Vic Electronic Conveyancing Settlement
We are proud to announce that we have conducted the very first EConveyancing settlement in the state of Victoria. This is an incredibly historic occasion and is arguably the largest single change to the transfer of property titles since the Torrens Title system was introduced.
To be chosen to be involved with this occasion is an enormous compliment for Jim’s Conveyancing and shows how well the brand and its franchisees are trusted.
PEXA, the organisation established to facilitate Electronic Conveyancing in Australia was delighted with our co- operation and professionalism said George Morison (franchisee). They consider us market leaders and we are very excited about how this will change our industry.
PEXA CEO Marcus Price said. “Together with PEXA, (Jim’s Conveyancing) are helping establish the backbone of a world leading online property exchange platform and are among the first in Victoria to be able to offer their clients real-time access to the proceeds of sale – just one of the many benefits PEXA provides.”
Jim’s Conveyancing’s Training Manager Emily Ferguson agrees. It is our hope that EConveyancing will mean the end of settlements not proceeding at the last minute due to incorrect signing of documents, incorrect spelling or any other number of small errors that one party may make. It will give purchasers the certainty of knowing when they will move and it will give vendors immediate access to their sale proceeds.
As Emily further adds, Jim’s Conveyancing is positioned to benefit from EConveyancing more than single branch conveyancing firms. With our national expansion in the coming months, our clients will be able to visit any Jim’s Conveyancing franchisee to have their identification verified, rather than going to considerable cost to pay for someone local, or travel, in some instances, considerable distances, to have their id verified by their appointed conveyancer.
