Australian Competition & Consumer Commission chairman Rod Sims has indicated that it may seek to become more involved in the electronic property settlement market. Revenue from e-conveyancing is estimated to be around $270 million a year, with PEXA seen to be effectively operating as a regulated monopoly. A review commissioned by the National Electronic Conveyancing Council found that enabling a competitive market within the sector may not necessarily be a good thing, although David Wills, the CEO of Sympli contends that consumers will benefit from competition and interoperability.
