What is a PEXA settlement?
Property Exchange Australia or PEXA, is an online property settlement tool used to improve accuracy and ensure your Perth settlement is compliant. With this tool, we can process fast settlements without needing buyers and sellers to physically attend a settlement. Saving you time and money.
All settlement payments between the buyer and seller can be done electronically with PEXA, eliminating the requirement to prepare cheques and transfer documentation. It also means that your settlement will be completed on time, removing the stress of possibly missing out on a property sale.
Why use a Perth PEXA settlement agent?
PEXA makes the experience of settling easier for you, whether you are purchasing or selling a property. It is faster, more efficient, and more convenient, so you can sell your property on time or you can be assured that you can get the keys and move in as planned.
Processing online settlements using PEXA reduces the likelihood of human error. It provides sellers with their funds quickly and buyers get their names on the title almost immediately.
Some of the other key benefits include:
- Simple Process – there is no longer a need to obtain and sign a paper transfer document or bank cheques.
- Certainty – PEXA is the only process, paper or electronic, that provides sellers with protection against fraud.
- Peace of Mind – sale proceeds are securely transferred digitally as cleared funds.
Using a settlement agent based in Perth means that you benefit from learned experience and knowledge of the state’s appropriate and necessary Land Registry documents, providing greater efficiency and assurance.
How do I get the fastest Perth settlement?
A settlement processed online using PEXA is hands-down the fastest and most efficient form of settlement.
As with all online service transactions, there are some clear time benefits to having your settlement completed digitally:
- As the Buyer; the property is transferred into your name within 24 hours, and all documents are registered online prior to the settlement being completed.
- As the Seller; the settlement will be completed on time (without postal delays), with funds being cleared immediately.
- As either Buyer or Seller; a reduction in fees that would have otherwise been charged for meetings, in-person signings, and back cheques

Is there a flat rate PEXA settlement fee?

This flat rate includes the fee charged by PEXA and excludes the standard government charges that also apply to Perth property transactions.
