Real estate compliance procedures are put into place to protect the agent, real estate seller, real estate buyer, the financial institution, and other parties that are investing their resources into a specific real estate venture.
Real Estate Compliance Lessons
A regulatory compliance officer has the job of inspecting and making sure that the records are up-to-date and filled out correctly. There may be internal audits conducted on transactions, too. With a cloud based system, these inspections can happen with very little disturbance of the office functions. Internal audits are also good practice for compliance officer training.
Document Approval Process
- Submitted documents – List view. All documents on one list displayed in chronological order.
- Submitted documents – Group view. All documents groped by transactions, transactions listed in chronological order.
- Submit individual documents. Submit documents for review on per document basis. Submit button on the document info panel.
- Submit a group of documents. Submit All button on the document list panel. Use case: In order to either approve or reject a document there is a need to familiarize yourself with the rest of the transaction and ultimately make a decision. On average it takes 5 minutes to do so, no matter if you want to approve only one document or multiple documents. Starting today users can accumulate documents in transactions and then submit a group of documents for review.
Updated User Permissions

- Step 2 – Submit for review. This step is controlled by “can submit documents for approval” in the user profile section.

Now you can control who can submit documents for review.
