Reform group's e-conveyancing plans

The Law Reform Commission has outlined proposals aimed at developing an electronic system for the transfer of the ownership of property in Ireland. Following a Modelling Report produced by BearingPoint, a Project Board drawn from the public and private sector is set to coordinate the next phase in the development of an eConveyancing system for Ireland. Its task is to make a detailed assessment of the most appropriate model for e-conveyancing in Ireland.

The Modelling report analysed the whole conveyancing process and identified the various delays and deficiencies in the system. These included the need to standardise all documents, the avoidance of overlap in sourcing information from stakeholders, and increased communication between them. The Commission stressed that the move to e-conveyancing is a policy matter for the government, rather than a matter for law reform.
