Commercial Transactions

We have made a number of enhancements to the Atsource entry screen to make it easier for Commercial Legal Professionals to enter an Atsource transaction with multiple lots. We queried our existing transaction database and determined that over 98% of all our transactions are single lot transactions. As a result, we surveyed our Financial Institution clients and asked them if having a maximum of two title searches per transaction was adequate. As it turns out, it is.

Improved Look

Atsource is constantly updating our software to improve our customer’s experience. It has been a number of years since we last changed the look and feel of the software and we thought it was time to modernize. On Friday, July 5, 2019, you will sign in and have a new look that includes the following benefits:

1.            A new task bar located on the right of the screen that allows easy access to items that are directly related to the transaction you are looking at.

Fee Changes

BC Land Titles and Survey Authority (LTSA) have announced that there will be a fee increase to most LTSA services effective April 1st. The notice of the LTSA fee increase is located at the following web page: https://ltsa.ca/fees Including in the new LTSA fee schedule is an increase for filing a discharge in the Land Title Registry to $29.66 plus the $1.50 myLTSA service charge for a total of $31.16.

Simplified Selection of Transferors

Effective September 14, 2018, Atsource is pleased to announce a software change to the process of entering the transferor for an internal transaction. Up to now it was necessary to review the full text of the Mortgagor’s recital to determine the Mortgagor that is listed on title. We have now changed the system so that each recital has the name of the Mortgagor in a separate field to identify it. This will save a few moments of your time and will cut down on errors.    

Northern Savings Credit Union

Effective March 15th, 2018 Atsource welcomes the addition of Northern Savings Credit Union to the Atsource system. Northern Savings is Community-based, member-owned, democratically governed and is proud to have been part of the credit union system since 1940. From its modest beginnings as a savings and loan cooperative, Northern Savings has built itself into one of the largest credit unions in Northern BC.

New Search Feature

Atsource has added a new feature that allows a user to limit the search results for transactions to the transactions that they are assigned to. This can be done by clicking the check box beside “Assigned to:” at the top of the “Transactions” page. You can also set up the home page dashboard screen to search for transactions limited to the user by going to the user profile page and clicking on the box beside “Assigned Only” for the appropriate window. The user profile can be accessed by clicking on your name at the top of any page.

Updated Interface and Enhanced Dashboard

Atsource is please to announce a new look to our application that we believe our users will find a welcome change from our old look. We have changed the interface to a more streamlined appearance with more “hovering” and “icons” to indicate links to additional information. You will immediately notice that our homepage has been converted to a “Dashboard”. This enables users to see a snapshot of transactions from four different views.
