Hi reader,
 
It’s been a monumental May in e-Conveyancing, with an unprecedented 100,000 online transactions completed for the month. Read about the milestone in this edition of Clicks & Mortar.
We were honoured to host the first PropertyX conference last month. Over 150 members of your network came together to engage in discussion about the digital future of the industry.
 
The day culminated with the inaugural Property Excellence Awards, celebrating the firms spearheading the industry’s reform. You’ll find a recap of the night and see all finalists and winners below.
 
It’s important to note GST withholding legislation changes, effective from 1 July. This applies to new residential premises or potential residential land. As of Release 8.0, which is now live, PEXA’s platform has new functionality to efficiently complete GST in the FSS. We’ve included a guide below to account for this change.
 
Fees for each of the Land Registries have recently undergone an annual review. You can find an update on Community here.
Your network continues to break new ground. Let’s carry this momentum into June and beyond, aiming for even greater heights.
Many thanks,
 
Ian Hendey
Chief Practitioner Services Officer
 
Lisa Dowie
