Burke & Associates Lawyers completes a paperless transaction – Electronic Contracts through to Electronic Settlements

Burke & Associates Lawyers pride itself in being on the cutting edge with technology and have embraced the technology to digitally exchange Contracts of Sale and arrange for settlement electronically via the platform known as PEXA.

What this means for Estate Agents

  • Save costs and time as you will not need to print, bind and collate Contracts and Vendor’s Statement
  • Vendor’s Statement is signed before it reaches you
  • No more completing numerous copies of sale documents after the property sells
  • Less mistakes made
  • Close a deal much faster as the Contract can be signed anywhere in the world
  • After the contract has been signed, all parties will automatically receive a completed signed copy of the Contract by email so no more manual process of photocopying and mailing to all parties
