This research examined the management of risk in conveyancing transactions in the context of the move from paper based to electronic conveyancing (eConveyancing). Legal, descriptive, analytical and comparative techniques were deployed in order to determine the likely impact of technological change on the distribution of legal risk with particular reference to Ontario and Ireland. The impact is the extent to which a change in transactional process may unintentionally affect risk. Risk being the consequence of change and the likelihood of that consequence having a negative effect. The particular focus was on risks that impact on title registration and the security, protection or lack thereof that this registration offers to land owners, third parties and property claimants. The method deployed was to use a model or abstracted process to perform a transaction analysis based on abstract participants and their standpoint in the process. The methodology was based upon doctrinal legal scholarship in the comparative law tradition. Both the method and methodology demanded that a neutral vocabulary be generated and this formed the foundation for the schematic.
