What is PEXA?
'PEXA' stands for the Property Exchange Australia, it is the leading Electronic Lodgement Network (ELN) in Australia. Essentially this is a nationally recognised system that provides for fast, safe and efficient property settlement.
Long gone are the days of physically attending settlement with paper cheques exchanging across a table. E-Conveyancing is now mandatory for all property transactions in Victoria.
What is land transfer duty and how much will I have to pay?
Land transfer duty or more commonly referred to as 'stamp duty', is a Government tax that will apply to certain transactions.
Some factors that will affect the duty payable is:
Regional commercial, industrial and extractive industries property concession.
Foreign purchaser additional duty.
