Most contracts include information or clauses that should be read and understood before you (and your clients) sign. The good news is that help is just right around the corner.
REALTORS® can now get answers within minutes to basic forms usage or clause questions by using the C.A.R. Forms Help Line directly inside the zipForm® Professional (online) account.
What to look for
When logging into www.car.org, you will find the “Access Now” button below the zipForm® 6 Professional logo. Next, click the C.A.R. Forms Help Line from the zipForm® toolbar and select your preferred phone number so C.A.R. can contact you instantly. Click the “Call Me” button and your call will be directed to a C.A.R. Forms Help Line expert.
Sample C.A.R. Forms Help Line Questions:
Does the SPQ replace the TDS, or other forms such as the SSD or SBSA?
What is a protection clause in the RLA, RLAA, and RLAN?
What is the proper use of the different versions of Disclosure Regarding Real Estate Agency Relationship form?
REALTORS® can now easily choose the home warranty company on the second page of the California Residential Purchase Agreement (RPA-CA) from a pre-populated list. American Home Shield (AHS) is the first service provider to fully integrate with zipForm® 6. American Home Shield also has its own forms library containing important policy information for your clients as well as the electronic version of its Home Protection Plan. Client and property information will auto-fill the Protection Plan just as it does for the rest of your transactions.
The AHSCA forms library is located on the left-hand side of your zipForm® 6 forms below the default library of C.A.R. As an added bonus, your Address Book lists all relevant contact information that can be pasted into the transaction using the Transaction Information icon.
