On February 1, 2017, Arizona REALTORS® will release a number of revised forms. You can find a complete list here: 2017 Revisions to [Purchase Contract and] Ancillary Forms.

How does this affect your Transactions and Templates in zipForm®? If you are using zipForm® Plus, the new forms will automatically be added to your Arizona REALTORS® Library.

If you are using zipForm® Standard, you will be prompted upon login to update your forms. Simply select the “Update All” option to be sure you have the latest version of zipForm® and all forms in your library.

Some forms will be available in both versions for a short time.* There will be cover pages on these forms to alert you as to which version you should use.

If you have any forms saved in Templates, you will be alerted that new forms have been added. Be sure to view all Template updates and confirm that any data previously typed into these forms is still accurate.

In order to be sure the most current forms are being used in the new Transaction, NEVER copy or re-use existing Transactions. Always start with a NEW Transaction and, if applicable, apply a Template.
