EasyFund makes it easier to close deals when you are working remotely
Apr 16th, 2020 | By FCT
EasyFundTM has been adopted by many legal professionals in Alberta and Nova Scotia as the easiest method to manage the transfer of real estate closing funds online. It reduces the need for certified cheques, bank drafts, direct deposits and couriers, saving you time, money and reducing risk. It is an especially useful tool during these challenging times. EasyFund allows for business continuity in the event your local bank branch is temporarily closed, or if your employees need to work remotely.
While the typical transfer process can be cumbersome, EasyFund lets you manage the payouts of your real estate transaction quickly and effortlessly without leaving the office, in three easy steps:
- Real estate clerk creates wire transfer based on the other lawyer’s void cheque
- Lawyer approves
- Lawyer sends a copy of wire confirmation to the other lawyer
If you already have wiring capabilities in place on your banking platform you can start using EasyFund today, completing payouts for all types of deals without leaving your desk; all you need is an internet connection. If your firm is not set up for wiring, there’s no need to worry – simply get in touch with us and we will help you get started.
