In 2016, South Australia introduced electronic conveyancing as part of a national framework to allow completion of real property transactions by registered practitioners (either lawyers or conveyancers) online.
Certain types of transactions must still be completed on paper. In particular, an Application to Register a Death of a joint registered proprietor (whether as a tenant in common or joint tenant) remains a paper transaction and advice should be sought from a legal practitioner or registered conveyancer to complete the right forms to ensure that the transaction is completed effectively. Further information is found here.
