Lexon risk alert

Lexon released a risk alert on 22 May publishing the Cyber Protocol which commences on 1 July 2020 and further audio-visual options in Wills and EPA matters following amendments published to the Justice Legislation (COVID-19 Emergency Response Documents and Oaths) Regulation 2020 which also affects a number of different documents. Practitioners are warned that an audio-visual option under this Regulation should only be used as a last resort.

Lexon has also updated the Conveyancing Protocol providing further prompts for COVID-19; electronic signing of company documents as a result of the published Corporations (Coronavirus Economic Response) Determination (No. 1) 2020 (Cth); and further discusses situations where PEXA may be unavailable (8 June for example).
