As part of the Dye & Durham conveyancing pricing in British Columbia, Dye & Durham customers actively using one of our conveyancing platforms (econveyance, ProSuite, or Brief Convey) in British Columbia can earn credits towards their esiLaw annual licence fee.
Your office will receive an email advising the number of esiLaw licences you have been approved for based on the number of transactions completed the previous year. Dye & Durham will defer billing for these licences at the beginning of this contract, and you will not be billed at all provided that each of the licences is earned over the course of the year. One esiLaw licence is earned by completing 6 conveyancing transactions in the current year.
If you wish to add additional esiLaw licences, over and above the pre-approved licences, you will be billed $100/licence monthly for each additional licence, at the beginning of each month.
Please note that if you decide not to continue transacting with a Dye & Durham conveyancing application in BC, or if your transaction volumes drop below your annual threshold, you will be billed for any non-earned esiLaw licences at $1,200/licence for the year.
Thank you for choosing Dye & Durham to power your real estate practice.
