The move over the last five years to more streamlined technology and electronic procedures in conveyancing has been given a further boost and added dimension by an increase in remote working arrangements and new rules for conveyancing practice and procedure resulting from the Covid-19 fallout. Nevertheless, these changes have also increased transactional risks, and this session provides a guide to practitioners on how to factor in and minimise risks in the new normal, including:

  • PEXA procedures and responsibilities – how the system has changed the role of practitioners
  • Practitioners as the “guardian at the gate” – the lessons from Guirgis v JEA Developments Pty Ltd
  • A toolkit for what practitioners should consider when making certifications and statements
  • Tips and traps for electronic witnessing and signatures – the controls that need to be in place
  • Follow-up signatures, multiple documents and record-keeping – evidentiary and other requirements
  • Corporations law requirements and electronic signatures
  • The risks of a remote VOI regime and obligations of practitioners as identity agents – what are “reasonable steps”?
  • What should a diligent practitioner be doing – fraud and risk minimisation, using third party verifiers and management of potential liability.

Attending a TEN webinar couldn’t be easier. Basically it’s just like attending a seminar except that you don’t have to leave the comfort of your office or home. You just need to be available at the appointed date and time with your computer and internet connection.

Once you’ve registered for the webinar, we send you a link so that you can login to the webinar from your computer. The speaker delivers the session from their computer in real time. Just like a live seminar, you can ask questions of the speaker. You simply type your question into the question box and the speaker responds to it during question time.

At the end of the webinar session we send you a certificate to confirm your attendance and the number of CPD hours you earned.

You will need a computer with sound, an internet connection and earphones if you need to participate in the webinar in an open office environment (so you don’t disrupt those around you).
