Transaction Review page

The Transaction Review page will be accessible only if you have:

  1. Connected with a brokerage firm that has created a Transaction Review Template for one of the four affiliation types (Buy, Sell, Rent, or Lease).
  2. Created a property (after brokerage connection) for one of the four affiliation types associated with an existing Transaction Review Template (created by the Brokerage Firm).

Once these requirements are met, the Transaction Review page will be accessible from the My Dashboard and Property Portal pages once activated. To activate the Transaction Review page, click on the Transaction Review button located at the top right of the Property Portal. After one or more Transaction Review pages have been activated, you may also access them by using the ‘Review’ dropdown in the My Dashboard page.

On the Transaction Review page you can view the property details, client information, recent comments, and upload contracts for review.

To create general comments click on the ‘New Comment’ button located above the Recent Comments section. All comments created within this page can be viewed by managing brokers and connected TC’s who have been given access. To view all recent comments click on the ‘VIEW ALL COMMENTS’ button. From this page you can view all comments and delete any comments that you have created by clicking on the trashcan icon.

The sections within the Transaction Review page include: Contract Type, Contract Name, Status, Reviewed By, Upload, Exempt, and Comments. Contracts that have an orange asterisk are required for review. Click on the name of the contract to view an uploaded contract. If a contract has not been uploaded, a message will inform you that no contract has been found. If a request for exemption was made for a contract, a message will inform you that this contract has either been requested for exemption (if not reviewed yet), or that the contract has been marked as Exempt by a managing broker.

Each contract will have a status; either N/A by default, In Review, Approved, Rejected, or Exempt. Contracts will be In Review upon uploading a contract or when you request for an exemption. Contracts with a status of ‘Exempt’ have been reviewed and marked as exempt. Contracts with a status of ‘Rejected’ have been reviewed by a managing broker who has found the contract to be unacceptable. Contracts that have been reviewed by a managing broker who has found the contract to be acceptable will have a status of ‘Approved’.

To see who has reviewed your contracts, view the ‘Reviewed By’ column to see the managing broker’s name.

To upload a contract for review, click on the ‘Upload’ button located to the right of the ‘Reviewed By’ column. Contracts created inside of eGent must be Fully Signed before they can be uploaded to the Transaction Review page. If you do not have a version of the contract with a status of ‘Fully Signed’, you may still upload an external document that exists within the Property Portal (for this transaction) or directly from your computer.

Click on the “Exempt” button to request for a contract to be exempt from review. You must enter a short message describing the reason for exemption before the contract status is changed to ‘In Review’. The status of the contract will change to ‘Exempt’ once a managing broker has reviewed and marked this contract as exempt.

To view and create comments specific to a contract, click on the green comments button. Comments can be viewed and created by an agent, TC, or Managing broker. Any comments that have not been viewed will appear as a notification with the number of unread comments.

Adding deadlines can be done in two ways:

  1. Sent (or received from another eGent user) CBS contracts will update and overwrite (if applicable) all deadlines in the ‘CBS’ tab.
  2. Sent (or received from another eGent user) Counterproposals, when Fully Signed, will update and overwrite (if applicable) all deadlines in the ‘Counterproposal’ tab.
  3. Amend/Extend contracts, when Fully Signed, will update and create new tabs within the ‘Amend/Extend’ tab.

In order for deadlines to show throughout the system, the property status must be ‘Under Contract’, an MEC date must be entered, “Will” or “Will Not” must be selected in §18.2, and there must be at least one deadline saved.
