When you upgraded to Windows 10, you received a new browser, Microsoft Edge. So this displays:

Windows 10 Solution

If the Form you are trying to open was created before June 22, 2016, you will still need to use Internet Explorer to open the file.  Any new Forms created after June 22, 2016 can be accessed from any Browser.
The CommercialBoardForms.com website is now available in all browsers.

Please Note: Now that Microsoft is migrating from Internet Explorer to the Edge browser, we recommend you use Edge, Chrome, Firefox, or Safari for best results with creating and editing new Forms.
Check to be sure the percentage shown in the bottom right corner of the screen is 100%. If there is anything other than 100%, click and reset to 100% or as you enter information into the form the cursor will jump all over the page.
Be sure the pop-up blocker is OFF. The form editor is a pop-up, so if the pop-up blocker is on you will not be able to pull up a form. To turn off all pop-up blockers, "control click".
Based on the fact that users are more accepting of forms backed by the Atlanta Commercial Board, the program was developed for users signing the customized form to clearly see what the original form stated and what has been added or deleted from the text.

New text is shown in a different font and blue so that it is differentiated from the original black text. Strikeouts are also evident.  When you create a PDF, you can select "clean copy" and all of the tracked changes will match the standard font.
The answer is not a simple one but the pricing system for CommercialBoardForms.com was adopted after a great deal of exploration, interviews and thought.

We have established a token model to be fair to as many users as possible. This pricing system allows many users have access to the program and only imposes a token cost on the individual who creates the final PDF. Those who don't do many transactions have a lower cost and some participants in a transaction may have no cost at all. This setup is ideal when there is a client, attorney, co-broker or others who are involved only in a particular transaction, would like to be involved in the editing process, but would not be interested in purchasing a program. This system means that some individuals and firms now have a much lower annual cost, and allow more people to participate, than a pricing model that charges an annual fee for every user regardless of their level of use. One of the benefits that we foresaw was that in some firms only the broker or an administrative person has an account with tokens and everyone else in the firm uses the program at no cost. When a final form is needed then the designated person creates the PDF, or, the password is shared by everyone in the office to create their form. This is working very well for a number of firms.
Yes, there is no restriction to logging on with the same ID.

An office could have one id that everyone uses and purchases are made from the one account.

Note:  it is possible for an error to occur if two people are trying to access the exact same thing at the exact same time but all they would have to do is try again.
Yes, you can fully utilize the program and even save your work and print DRAFT copies of the forms.  You only need an account to print the FINAL version for signature.
Each document or form has a set number of tokens to print the final copy.  The token value of each form is determined by your Board.

Yes.  CommercialBoardForms.com is a web based software solution allowing you access to all of your forms from anywhere an internet connection is available.
At this time there in not an expiration date on the tokens.  If the Board decides to change this policy, all users will be given ample notice.
The Benefits of a Token based system:

  • The only time that the tokens are used is to print the final copy of a document, which means that there is no cost to use the program until that point.
  • The program can be used by everyone without incurring any cost, it only becomes necessary to set up an account and pay once the user needs to print a final copy for signature.  This means that the draft versions of the forms can be emailed to whoever you want, still with no expense.
  • Because you only spend tokens for the forms you print the users that use the forms infrequently pay less than the users that use the forms on a daily basis. This is more equitable to Board members.
  • Once customers are comfortable with CommercialBoardForms.com they will see how CommercialBoardForms allows them to save time and produces more readable and professional forms for their business.

Some courts have ruled that if a Purchase Agreement allows the buyer to terminate the agreement and get all its Earnest Money back, the Agreement was in essence an unenforceable option, and a failure of consideration renders the Agreement null and void. In that instance, any obligations which the parties intended would survive the termination fo the contract no longer exist. Allowing the seller to keep $100 of the Earnest Money in all events provides consideratin for the agreement and avoids this problem.
