By-Law 7.1 and rules amended re: electronic registration of title documents
Convocation approved amendments to Rules 6.1-5 and 6.1-6 (Electronic Registration of Title Documents) and By-Law 7.1 (Relationship to the Law Society and other Lawyers) to reflect recent changes to the Teraview system.
Teraview is currently launching a web-based application for accessing Ontario’s land records database, replacing the desktop version. The new web-based application requires either a soft or hard RSA token to sign instruments for completeness and/or release. The amendments approved by Convocation ensure the language in the rules and By-Law 7.1 reflect the new practice.
The web-based application was launched on January 8, 2018 and is being implemented across the province on a rolling basis.
