RealtiPLUS™2.5, the one-stop desktop, harnesses technology for real estate bar

The June launch of RealtiPLUS 2.5 - "the integrated real estate desktop" - helped lawyers take a major step towards the online, fully automated office of the future.

The new software conveyancing program, developed jointly by TitlePLUS and CAKEsoft Inc., provides lawyers with a single, fully unified desktop from which they can perform virtually all of the functions involved in purchase, sale and mortgage transactions, including:

  • production of documents, such as search and inquiry letters, closing documentation, and reporting letters;
  • file management;
  • database access and management;
  • online electronic search of properties in Teraview®;
  • online, seamless application for TitlePLUS title insurance protection for the transaction.

RealtiPLUS significantly streamlines real estate practice, reducing the time it takes to complete transactions from data entry to generation of closing documents by up to 30 per cent.

Lawyers using RealtiPLUS work on a single data platform, entering all information pertaining to the transaction only once; this data automatically pre-populates all other relevant functions, such as the TitlePLUS application, various search and inquiry letters that are generated by the system, and even the Teraview® search windows.

The software produces the appropriate requisition letters, reporting letters and closing documents. To facilitate the move to electronic registration, RealtiPLUS 2.5 also automatically generates the companion paper documents for e-reg™, including the Document Registration Agreement (DRA). Extensive databases, template letters, forms and applications, and an up-to-date precedent library further streamline the process.

A major advantage of RealtiPLUS 2.5 is its integration with Teraview®, the online search facility. As well as pre-populating the Teraview® search windows, RealtiPLUS 2.5 imports data from an online property search back into the system. Now in testing is the facility to pre-populate the e-reg™ software with data from the lawyer's electronic RealtiPLUS file, thus further reducing the need for duplicate entry.
