Some unused and out of date Fields have recently been removed from the NSW Property layout as follows:

|Nearest cross street||Side of street||Frontage|
The updates provide a cleaner layout for efficient and easier user completion.
Client feedback was obtained prior to removal of the fields. You can provide any further feedback for improvements to NSW Conveyancing matters here.
We have created hyperlinks for all Matter Information Sheets currently available in LEAP Community. The Information Sheets are How to articles to assist you on matter setup and common form usage. Information Sheets that are matter specific are located in the LEAP Forms folder and Information Sheets that are relevant to a particular form are located immediately preceding the form.

The following new form has been added:

We have made some necessary changes to your Sale and Purchase matter types for improved efficiency in your conveyancing matters.
We are continuing to work on a large project to change the functionality behind our forms to use our Word App entitled LEAP Document Manager (LDM). This change is necessary to make our forms compatible with Word Online.
These changes are in preparation of future enhancements to our LDM versions of the Settlement Adjustment Sheets/Statement of Adjustments (SAS), with the NSW SAS LDM due for release firstly shortly. Keep an eye on the Forms Blog for release notification. These enhanced versions will contain a time-efficient two-way write back functionality, whereby Directions (cheques) created within the LDM will automate directly to your LEAP matter and vice versa.
The write back functionality can however only map to ONE location in your LEAP matter and that is the relevant Sale / Purchase Reconciliation table. The Cheque Details table will therefore no longer default to any newly created matters.
Why write back to the Reconciliation table and NOT the Cheque details table? [Read more…]
