As of January 1st, 2021, Dotloop is no longer an authorized platform for hosting OREF forms. Dotloop users may complete transactions that, at the end of 2020, were in process in a Dotloop loop using OREF’s 2020 forms, but may not access any blank OREF forms from any Dotloop platform (including templates) in 2021. Dotloop users may place completed OREF forms, acquired through a licensed platform, onto a Dotloop platform for storage or transaction management purposes.
The OREF forms library is a digital product, licensed for use by individual brokers who may access the forms through licensed forms hosts, such as Lone Wolf (zipForms) and SkySlope. OREF requires each licensed forms hosts to demonstrate that their platform contains reasonable protocols and technologies to protect the integrity of the OREF forms library, to prevent modifications to the content of the forms, to limit forms access to only OREF’s currently licensed forms subscribers, and to ensure that only the most accurate and current forms are made available to subscribers.
After a careful and extensive analysis conducted over much of 2020, OREF concluded that Dotloop was not satisfying all of those requirements and was not in a position to satisfy them in 2021. As a result, we were not able to renew our license with Dotloop to host the OREF forms library. We understand this will be frustrating for many loyal Dotloop users, and we continue to dialog with Dotloop about the ability to use evolving technologies to meet these standards in the future.
