REINSW lobbying pays off: electronic signing passed
23 November 2018
In a big win for REINSW, the property services industry and consumers, residential tenancy agreements can now be signed and witnessed digitally. 

The Conveyancing Legislation Amendment Bill 2018 (NSW) was assented to on Thursday, 22 November 2018, after swiftly passing through both the Upper and Lower houses of NSW Parliament between October and November.

REINSW has actively lobbied for electronic signing for many years. REINSW CEO, Tim McKibbin, says it's great to see the Government finally take the step forward.

“This is good for agents, landlords and tenants,” he says. 

“Times are changing, and technology is playing a more pivotal role in the property services industry. This amendment will bring the industry in-line with other industries embracing technology and streamline business practices.

“We have lobbied hard for this win and we are proud that we can provide the tools property professionals need to take advantage of the efficiencies this Bill enables.

“With digital forms and agreements, and digital signing platforms – such as REI Forms Live and DocuSign – at the ready, property managers across NSW will have the ability to develop, communicate and finalise residential tenancy agreements digitally.”
