TitleVest Launches ACRIS ASAP after successful Beta Test
Revolutionary New Software Makes Completing New York City’s
Required ACRIS E-Tax Forms Faster and Easier


New York, NY (05/08/05) -TitleVest Agency, Inc., a leading provider of title insurance and related real estate services, announced the launch of its revolutionary new ACRIS E-Tax automation software, known as ACRIS ASAP.

Exclusively available at www.TitleVest.com , the software, which is available free of charge, dramatically simplifies the creation of ACRIS E-Tax forms, saving real estate attorneys and other professionals time and money when completing New York City’s required ACRIS E-Tax forms for real property and co-op transfers. ACRIS ASAP is an innovative software program that allows users to enter information on a one-page form on TitleVest’s website. The program interfaces with the City’s ACRIS website and automatically creates all of the required E-Tax forms in a matter of minutes.

In contrast, the City’s ACRIS website requires users to navigate numerous pages, tabs and sub-tabs in order to create the required E-Tax forms. It is easy to make mistakes and omit information – and sometimes difficult to identify what information is missing – which results in the forms being rejected. ACRIS ASAP virtually eliminates the possibility of these types of mistakes for standard arms length conveyances.

According to TitleVest President, Bill Baron: “There is simply no faster or easier way to create and modify transfer documents for New York City transactions than ACRIS ASAP. Attorneys who have found it easier to outsource the creation of E-Tax forms will be amazed at the ease and convenience of doing it themselves with ACRIS ASAP.

ACRIS ASAP is fully integrated with TitleVest ‘s library of legal forms, title, coop and UCC orders. What this means is that any data from any legal form or TitleVest order can be automatically transferred into ACRIS ASAP, further eliminating both the need for redundant and time consuming data entry and the possibility of typographical errors. While the City’s ACRIS website creates only some of the required transfer documents, TitleVest.com allows for the creation of all required transfer documents, including contracts of sale, deeds, affidavits, along with all the E-Tax documents.

In addition, ACRIS ASAP streamlines the process of creating the required cover pages for coop transfers. Each morning, ACRIS ASAP automatically creates all of the required co-op cover pages for closings occurring that day. An email alert is sent to ACRIS ASAP users on the day of their closing advising them that the cover pages have been created and are available on the TitleVest website alongside their E-Tax forms.
