Lone Wolf Technologies partners with Dye & Durham to simplify legal processes for real estate transactions
New integration exclusively for CREA WEBForms® powered by Transactions gives agents new way to process and close deals
CAMBRIDGE, ON and DALLAS, TX – October 17, 2022 – Real estate professionals across Canada are about to discover a new way to process and close their deals. Today, Lone Wolf Technologies (“Lone Wolf”) is excited to announce a brand-new integration with Dye & Durham Limited (“Dye & Durham”), made specifically for CREA WEBForms® powered by Transactions (TransactionDesk Edition) to bring access and communications with legal services directly into the Canadian national transaction management member benefit.
Every real estate transaction in Canada requires a lawyer or notary to process and close the deal. Currently, a major pain point in the process for real estate professionals is the delivery of conveyancing instructions to the law firms. The current process is performed primarily through email or fax, which can be tedious, less secure, and more error-prone.
Dye & Durham maintains a comprehensive digital database of real estate lawyers and law firms with real-time contact updates. This new integration gives real estate professionals across Canada access to Dye & Durham's Unity platform where available, so they can process and close deals without relying on email through access to the Dye & Durham lawyer contact database. It also allows them to send referrals to legal services through CREA WEBForms® directly to the Unity platform.
“We are thrilled to partner with Dye & Durham to modernize the home stretch of Canadian real estate transactions,” said Jimmy Kelly, CEO of Lone Wolf. “With this new integration, we’re taking another step toward completely connected transactions—and furthering the mission to deliver the digital experience both agents and consumers have come to expect.”
With the Dye & Durham integration, CREA WEBForms® super users will be able to access the full Canadian database of lawyer contact details, completely removing the need for users to maintain databases of their own. Additionally, these details will be updated in real time through the integration, so users will always have the most up-to-date contact information. Super users will also be able to:
- Monitor the status of transactions in lawyer or solicitor review
- Maintain existing workflows with an integration specifically designed for CREA WEBForms®
- Search for lawyers and submit transactional documents directly
“This partnership is an exciting opportunity to transform the Canadian real estate landscape,” said Matthew Proud, CEO of Dye & Durham. “As a market-leading solution provider for legal professionals, we empower them to complete every transaction reliably, securely, and easily—and by giving real estate professionals access to this same service, together we can help them improve the way they serve their clients.”
This integration will be free of charge for CREA WEBForms® super users. It will be rolled out starting today, and will be available to members in Ontario, Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta, Nova Scotia, and New Brunswick.
