Electronic conveyancing in Australia: Is anyone concerned about security?

Thomas, Rod, Griggs, Lynden, & Low, Rouhshi (2014) Electronic conveyancing in Australia: Is anyone concerned about security? In Australasian Property Law Teachers Conference, Bond University, Gold Coast, Brisbane.


Three proof requirements as essential for a sustainable land registration system. These were proof of identity, proof of ownership, and authority to deal. Our attention in this paper is drawn to the latter two requirements and will ask whether the introduction of the Property Exchange of Australia (PEXA), and its underpinning regulatory regime will meet the concerns that we have in relation to proof of ownership and authority to deal. In drawing out some problems with PEXA, we then offer an innovative idea, sourced from the transfer of equities that could serve to generate discussion on how we can ensure the Torrens system of land registration is sustainable for another 160 years.
