Advice on special conditions for agents (including for COVID-19 scenarios):

To assist South Australian agents in this time, we have prepared a set of special conditions that can be inserted in Contracts. Send me an email and I will be happy to provide the wording for you to use.

PEXA Settlements

Paper settlements have been put on hold with the closure of the settlements room at the LTO. However, settlements are still able to occur through the electronic settlement platform PEXA. We are completing all settlements on this platform and it’s working very well and providing certainty to all agents, vendors and purchasers in this uncertain time.
