Common easyOFFER 2017 Update Questions and Answers

 

 
Q.Do I have to use the new forms?
A.The Ontario Real Estate Business and Brokers Act (REBBA) and Regulations mandate that you must use only the current forms.  The 2017 forms are now the current forms and it is a violation of the Act to use or accept outdated forms.
  
Q.Why have the forms have changed?
A.The Ontario Real Estate Association (OREA) standard forms committee has updated the forms to account for new legislation, legal precedents, changes in the industry, and to make them easier for both agents and the public to use and understand.
  
Q.Will I be able to keep all of my stored offers?
A.Yes!  All of your stored documents will automatically be preserved.
  
Q.Will my custom clauses be saved?
A.Yes!  All of your custom clauses will be preserved.
  
Q.Should I get the TREB or OREA edition?
A.If you are a member of the Toronto Real Estate Board, you should get the TREB edition, otherwise get the OREA edition which covers all of Ontario including Toronto.
  
Q.Can I get both the TREB and OREA editions?
A.Absolutely!  Simply select the TREB edition and then check the "Add OREA Forms Edition" option.
  
Q.What's the difference between the TREB and OREA editions?
A.Most of the forms are identical with the exception of the TREB logo in the upper-right. The TREB edition contains several forms that are specific to the Toronto Real Estate Board, particularly the listing agreements and data forms. If you are a TREB member, you should use the TREB edition.
  
Q.Can I use the TREB edition's forms outside of the GTA?
A.Yes. All the forms, with the exception of the listing agreements, are identical to the OREA edition and may be used anywhere in Ontario.
  
Q.Which forms have changed?
A.Almost all of the forms have changed in some way, some substantial, some minor.
