The Working Group and Ontario Real Estate Assn. announce new alliance to put standard forms online



    TORONTO, April 10 /CNW/ - The Working Group on Lawyers and Real Estate
today announced a new alliance with the Ontario Real Estate Association that
gives Ontario's real estate lawyers instant online access to the standard real
estate forms that are currently used for property transactions in the
province.
    Under the new alliance between The Working Group and the Ontario Real
Estate Association (OREA), English and French e-versions of six standard real
estate transaction forms used for residential and commercial property deals in
the province will now be made available online, as facilitated by
LawyerDoneDeal Corp. of Toronto. Access to the forms is available at
www.lawyersworkinggroup.com.
    The standard forms, which can be completed and revised online, securely
viewed by others involved in a transaction, printed out or saved to a desktop,
include:

    
    -   Agreement of Purchase and Sale (Residential);
    -   Agreement of Purchase and Sale (Condominium Resale);
    -   Agreement of Purchase and Sale (Commercial);
    -   Agreement of Purchase and Sale (Condominium Resale-Commercial);
    -   Agreement to Lease (Commercial);
    -   Schedule "A" - Agreement of Purchase and Sale.
    

    "The Working Group and OREA have joined forces to make these key
documents available online, giving Ontario's real estate lawyers access to a
faster, more efficient transaction process," said Maurizio Romanin, President
of LawyerDoneDeal Corp. "With online forms, everyone involved in the property
deal will now be on the same page at the same time - it's a new way to
transact deals and the benefits will be obvious."
    The availability of online forms will deliver immediate benefits both for
real estate practitioners and the buyers and sellers that they serve, said Lou
Radomsky, Outside Counsel for OREA's Standard Forms Committee.
    "This is a real step forward that will let people serving the entire real
estate industry work better, faster and smarter," said Radomsky. "Now,
regardless of the type of deal, you'll have instant access to the forms you
need to process and finalize the sale for your client. It is faster and more
reliable. And with the forms now online, each can be updated or revised
seamlessly to address any new issues of the day."
    Ray Leclair, co-chair of The Working Group, said this latest initiative
involving OREA, The Working Group and LawyerDoneDeal will ultimately result in
better service for members of the public involved in real estate transactions.
    "The Working Group is pleased to partner with OREA to provide Ontario's
real estate lawyers with new ways to increase their efficiency and deliver
better service to the Ontario public," Leclair said. "The Working Group will
continue to pursue significant new ways to assist lawyers who want to give
their clients the highest levels of service possible."
