Use the following special condition to ensure your contract settles electronically!
It is an essential term of this contract that completion shall occur by way of an Electronic Settlement using the ELNO system operated by PEXA and in that regard the parties agree that an affirmative notice by each of them under condition 11.1(1) of the contract herein shall be deemed to have been given. It is agreed that in condition 11.5(2)(b) the following is deleted “or suspension of their access to the ELNO system”.
Note: This special condition would need to be inserted into your contract BEFORE you sign it.
And what's so good about this special condition...
Monkey Conveyancing is currently providing FREE Upgrades to PEXA Electronic Settlements!*
*This offer is available when the solicitor acting for the other party agrees.
The benefits of a PEXA Electronic Settlement:
If you are buying, this means you become the registered owner of the property immediately instead of waiting up to three months, therefore potentially missing out on your discount for early payment of council and water rates and possibly having to pay interest on late unpaid balances.
If you are selling, this means you get your money in your account in 30 minutes of settlement – instead of the usual 3 days for a cheque to clear. No more signing or posting documents (potentially a loss or delay) and no more going to the trouble of finding a JP to witness documents.
A PEXA Electronic Settlement also offers:
- Secure cash transfers
- Convenient settlement times
- Greater certainty of settlement
- Peace of mind!
If the conveyancing company you are considering going with is not offering PEXA Electronic Settlements, you need to ask them why??
