REINT Seminar – Are you Cyber Secure?

With the significant rise in targeted attacks in the real estate, legal and conveyancing sectors, we remind all members and the greater business community to be vigilant on protecting your IT and online business from attacks.

To assist members, last week on the 18th of June the Real Estate Institute of NT hosted an online seminar on cyber security where special guest, Dante St James, presented a talk on cyber security that included a few helpful tips to help business protect themselves online.

Take a look at the full presentation below:

Special thanks to the REINT team for sharing this video to our members.

If you require further assistance on protecting your online and office infrastructure and systems, please contact the committee for recommendations and providers who can assist you.

December Update

To Market to market:

Matter numbers are reasonable, a few more Mortgagee sales are occurring and increasingly so from the BIG FOUR as opposed from the third tier Lenders as has been in the past, Members are still experiencing some Buyers making outrageous demands as a result of poor pre-purchase inspection reports. Sellers are left between a rock and hard place. If they refuse to attend to the demands invariably, they lose their sale.


Members read in a report provided by National that was written by ACCC that the NT (along with Tasmania and the ACT) may have E-Conveyancing by 2022; subject to funding.

Alice Springs Visit

While Nicole Myler and Sandra Lenz were in Alice Springs recently, attending an Agents Licensing Board meeting, they took the opportunity to wine and dine with the Licensed Conveyancers in the Centre. They caught up on the vagaries and experiences of a Conveyancer in Central Australia. Not surprising, same as those in the Top End.


We were obligated to vacate our premises for the past 6 weeks while our Landlord (The Fidelity Fund) had works carried out to install a washroom and ramp to allow wheelchair access.
AICNT with the NT Law Society and the Real Estate Institute offices are in the one complex and can now offer their Members a comfortable meeting place and a video conference / training room.

Agents Licensing Board meeting held in Alice Springs

Agents Licensing Board Members Nicole Myler and Sandra Lenz recently attended an Agents Licensing Board meeting held in Alice Springs.

They took the opportunity to catch up with a few of the Licensed Conveyancers while in Alice Springs and are seen here with Kate Kelly, Julie Lawrie, Amanda StClair and Anne Davey-Smith.

And of course Nicole and Sandra just had to drop into the Land Titles Office while in the Centre seen here with the Deputy Registrar Paul Bandiera.

Conveyancer of the Year – 2018

Julie received the Australian Institute of Conveyancers “NT Division” – Conveyancer of the Year Award for 2018. She was also runner up for 2017.

She has lived and worked in Alice Springs for over 35 years and has had her own successful Conveyancing Practice since early 2007. Julie is herself a keen property investor.

Prior to becoming a Conveyancer Julie was involved in other business ventures including the Alice Springs Business Centre and Office National. She spent about 20 years in the Travel Industry winning several awards in that field.

Julie is a member of the AIC NT and has been a Certified Practising Conveyancer since this was introduced in the NT 5 years ago. She does this so she can maintain best practices, keep up to date and abreast of what is happening in the Conveyancing industry and as a consequence offer her clients the best possible service.

Julie prides herself on her attention to detail and making sure her clients are aware of their legal obligations and options so they can make informed choices. Protecting their rights and interests during a transaction are a priority.


Conveyancer of the Year – 2017

This year will be a ground breaking year for AICNT as we will be having our Award Ceremony in February 2017 where the CPC earned in 2016 and the Awards earned in 2016 will be presented.

Conveyancer of the year

Meet Meggsie Muis of Tschirpig Conveyancing Palmerston. This year Meggsie was awarded the inaugural Australian Institute of Conveyancers NT Division – Conveyancer of the Year Award for 2017 .

Meggsie began her legal career in 1980 as a Rounds Clerk at Cridland & Bauer. From there Meggsie worked for Waters James & O’Neil for ten years and then at Halfpennys for another seven years and finally at Ward Keller for a short period in 1997. In those days Conveyancing was carried out by a Law Firm – this changed in 1996 when Conveyancers became licensed and no longer had to work under the umbrella of a Law firm.

35 years later, as well as being a Commissioner for Oaths, and a Licensed Conveyancing Agent, Meggsie is now with CPC accreditation and runs the Palmerston Office for Tschirpig Conveyancing. September this year will mark her 20th year at Tschirpig.

Meggsie’s aim as a Conveyancer is to provide a service with honesty integrity and communication. Purchasing property, whether for investment or as a first home buyer, can be a stressful time. Meggsie ensures that her clients are looked after and guided through the conveyancing process with as minimal stress as possible.
