I don't know about the other states, but WA conveyancing has been very manual and paper based. There are paper cheques, paper Registration of Mortgage application forms to fill out etc. It is expensive and slow... oh so slow! Anyway, news just in: http://www.news.com.au/finance/real...s-within-an-hour/story-fndbaln9-1227466095123 Exciting times! I will move to electronic conveyancing as soon as possible.
