What is a subscriber?

A subscriber is a person or business authorised to complete electronic conveyancing transactions using an ELNO. There are two types of subscribers:

  • Principal subscribers who represent themselves - financial institutions and government agencies and
  • Representative subscribers (solicitors and licensed conveyancers) who represent other parties.

Each electronic lodgment case has a responsible subscriber who, following lodgment, is liable for lodgment fees and is responsible for the resolution of requisitions. The responsible subscriber in an electronically lodged case fulfils a similar role to that of the lodging party in a case lodged in paper.

For more information on the eligibility criteria for becoming a subscriber or the different subscriber roles, see the NSW Model Participation Rules (s4 and 5) (PDF 208.1 KB).
