Melbourne Polytechnic first vocational educator to offer PEXA training for conveyancers

11 Sep 2017

Conveyancing in Australia is undergoing a substantial transformation, and Melbourne Polytechnic is already able to prepare conveyancers for the change.

From 1 December 2017, all caveats submitted in Victoria must be done via PEXA, Australia’s online property exchange network. PEXA assists lawyers, conveyancers and financial institutions to lodge documents with Land Registries, and complete financial settlements electronically.

All transactions will be digital in Victoria by 1 August 2019.

Current conveyancers, and practitioners entering the field through vocational training, now have the opportunity to get ahead of the pack by achieving their PEXA skills through Melbourne Polytechnic’s Advanced Diploma of Conveyancing (Partial).

The changes being introduced with the digitisation of the conveyancing process will mean that property vendors and sellers will benefit from faster, more secure transactions. Vendors will receive their funds more quickly, and buyers will be able to get their hands on their titles sooner.

With Melbourne Polytechnic’s Advanced Diploma of Conveyancing (partial), students get the required training to become a conveyancer, and just need twelve months’ experience with a licensed conveyancer before they can apply for their own licence and go into business. These students will now also get the PEXA training as part of their course.

For more information on our Advanced Diploma of Conveyancing (partial), visit our website or call one of our friendly Education and Career Advisors on 03 9269 8400.
