Are you in the process of buying or selling a property in Brisbane? You may have heard about PEXA, but you're not sure what it is or how it works. Let's break it down! ?

PEXA (Property Exchange Australia) is an electronic platform that enables property transactions to be completed digitally. PEXA is designed to simplify and speed up the process of property transactions, making it more efficient and secure for everyone involved.

Traditionally, property transactions are completed using paper forms that need to be signed and physically exchanged between parties. This process can be time-consuming, and it can be challenging to manage all the parties involved, including buyers, sellers, banks, and conveyancers.

With PEXA, all parties can securely transfer property ownership and funds electronically. It reduces the risk of errors or fraud, and it provides real-time updates, so everyone can stay informed throughout the transaction.

What type of transactions can be completed on PEXA?

There are a wide variety of transactions which can be completed electronically through PEXA depending on each state and territory.

Most property transactions involved with mainstream conveyancing such as the following can be completed on PEXA.

  • Transfers;

  • Mortgages and discharge of mortgages;

  • Caveats and withdrawal of caveats;

  • Encumbrances and discharge of encumbrances;

  • Priority Notices;

  • Transmissions;

  • Transmission Direct to Beneficiary;

  • Survivorships;

  • Leases; and

  • Financial settlements.

Here's how PEXA works:

1️⃣ Your conveyancer or solicitor sets up a PEXA account and invites all parties involved in the transaction to join.

2️⃣ All parties verify their identity and provide any necessary documents.

3️⃣ The conveyancer or solicitor prepares the documents needed to complete the transaction, such as the transfer of ownership and the discharge of any mortgages.

4️⃣ The parties electronically sign the documents within the PEXA platform.

5️⃣ The funds are transferred electronically, and ownership is transferred to the buyer.

6️⃣ The transaction is completed, and everyone involved receives a digital copy of the documents and notifications about the process.

PEXA is a game-changer for property transactions, eliminating the need for paper-based processes and making the experience more efficient, transparent, and secure. PEXA is now the preferred method of property transfer in Queensland, so you can rest assured that your transaction is in good hands.

As always, we recommend working with experienced conveyancers or solicitors to guide you through the PEXA process and ensure that your transaction goes smoothly.

How much does it cost to use PEXA?

PEXA charges users a fee per transaction which is collected at settlement. Therefore, if the transaction is not successful there will be no PEXA fees.

The fees are subject to change and differ from state to state and from transaction to transaction. The complete schedule of fees can be found on the PEXA website.
