Stewart Title Ltd Enters Partnership to Provide Lodgement Gap Cover on the Sympli e-Settlement Services Platform

Stewart Title Ltd, the underwriter for Stewart’s transactions in the United Kingdom, Europe and Australia, is pleased to announce that it has entered into an agreement with Sympli Australia Pty Ltd (Sympli) to provide Lodgement Gap Cover on residential property transactions processed through Sympli.

With Stewart Title insuring the risk, Sympli clients can be assured that Stewart Title will assume the responsibility for any intervening instruments or notices lodged by a third party during the lodgement period, which have the effect of either preventing the registration of the customer’s land title dealing or taking priority over the customer’s land title dealing once registered.

"As a title insurer, our goal is to provide security and peace of mind to property buyers and lenders," said Ciaran Westland, General Manager, Stewart Title Ltd. "To this end, we are very pleased to partner with Sympli to offer a complete package to their subscribers."

Sympli is Australia’s newest electronic settlement service and is a collaboration between ASX Limited and InfoTrack Pty Limited. Sympli is focused on bringing healthy competition, reliability, security and value to lawyers, conveyancers and financial institutions with an e-settlement service built by users, for users.

David Wills, CEO, Sympli, said, "Our aim is to make the e-settlements process as secure, efficient and reliable as possible. Working with Stewart is just one more way we can provide a trusted, superior service to lawyers and conveyancers."
