Free seminar for solicitors and conveyancing professionals

Understanding your VOI Legal Obligations and getting ready for the changes!

With the introduction of Electronic Conveyancing (eC) comes change to all conveyancing processes in Victoria. Several of the requirements for eC are also applicable to paper-based transactions as the Registrar of Titles aligns the two methods.

Formal identification of your clients will soon be compulsory for ALL conveyancing transactions, whether on paper or electronic.

These requirements are set out in the Verification of Identity (VOI) Standard in the Australian Registrars National Electronic Council (ARNECC) Model Participation Rules.

With these new rules coming into effect, your firm needs a system in place to easily and seamlessly verify your clients, manage the process and store the information for the required period, without contravening applicable privacy laws.

This seminar will set out what ‘reasonable steps’ for identity verification are, an overview of national requirements towards electronic conveyancing and how you can meet all legal obligations, including safe and secure long-term data storage.

By the end of the seminar, you’ll know what your legal obligations will be and how to make sure you’re ready!
