“Technology and tech-related risks always come hand in hand. Nowadays, legal notices may be served electronically. Clause 20.6.2 of the NSW standard sale of land contract allows documents to be served via the online workspace. Under clause 20.6.6, a document is deemed served if it comes into the possession of the person.

Technology expands the channels of communication, but it also increases the risks of lawyers ‘missing’ a document served via a proptech platform or software. In the event of dispute, the proptech will provide a time stamp of the time the document is served, regardless of whether it in fact reaches the person having the carriage of the matter,”- Ms Yuqing Sui
