NSW Conveyancing documents can now be completed electronically

Our customers

With electronic signatures now accepted on the documents required for the transfer of property or land, those transactions can now be completed digitally from beginning to end.

This simplifies and accelerate the process for everyone – the conveyancers, buyers, and vendors alike.

Here are the steps to signing a Contract for Sale for a property in NSW:

  1. The contract you need to sign will be emailed to you
  2. Click on REVIEW CONTRACT
  3. Click in the box that says, I AGREE TO USE ELECTRONIC RECORDS AND SIGNATURES
  4. Click on CONTINUE
  5. Scroll down the page and click on the word SIGN
  6. Select how you would like to sign the contract
  7. Your signature should show on the contract.
  8. Click ADOPT AND SIGN
  9. On the next page you should see your signature on the contract.
  10. Click on FINISH at the top of the page.

If there are two people buying, the second person must also follow the above steps.

How Contracts for Sale were signed in the past

In the past, signing contracts to buy or sell a house in NSW with a solicitor or conveyancer was difficult. It usually meant taking time off work to sign the contract. All this took time and effort.

How modern conveyancers can help make signing easier

There is now a much easier way to sign contracts.  It can all be done on any computer or mobile device, as long as you have internet.

We have had clients:

  • Sign contracts while on holidays in Thailand
  • Sign contracts while living overseas
  • Sign while on a cruise
  • And of course, sign in their lounge room

What do I need in order to sign electroncially?

Of course you’ll need a conveyancer who has the technology to be able to provide Contracts that can be signed electronically. If your conveyancer has the technology, there are no limits as to where you can sign. As long as you have:

  • Internet access
  • A device to view your emails.

If you have these, you’ll be able to sign contracts on your phone, computer or tablet.
