Frequently asked questions

Who has contributed to the content?

Clarilis Real Estate Plus contains precedents from both the MCL drafting committee (with representation from a wide range of top tier commercial real estate practices) and Gowling WLG (who is also a member of the MCL committee).

Gowling WLG has drafted the additional precedents contained within Real Estate Plus:

  • to be harmonious with the MCL documents; and

  • to represent a fair market view, rather than necessarily Gowling WLG’s house view in particular areas.

The content is maintained in accordance with changes in real estate law and practice over time, and based on market feedback - i.e. Clarilis and Gowling WLG will evolve the underlying automation and precedents in line with feedback received from commercial real estate departments and the MCL drafting committee, rather than necessarily in-line their own views or preferred positions.

Can I have it in my house style?

Real Estate Plus includes Clarilis Styling, which enables firms to extensively customise the styling of documents drafted, whilst maintaining all of the benefits of centrally maintained content and automation.

Clarilis Styling goes way beyond changing the logo, font typeface and size. There are nearly a hundred different content and styling parameters which Clarilis will configure for you as part of the onboarding process.

Where required, bespoke house styling is also available to 100% match your firm’s house style (available to larger firms on request).

What is the difference between this product and the existing Clarilis MCL suites?

Clarilis Real Estate Plus includes all of Clarilis’ automated MCL content, together with:

  • Expanded commercial real estate content building on the MCL content for new leases and lettings. For example, through the addition of an Agreement for Lease, Lease by Reference, various Licenses, Deed of Variation, Tenancy at Will, and an Early Access Letter.
  • Extensive additional content for areas not covered by the MCL, such as sales, lease surrender, options, pre-emptions, and collateral warranties.

 

Is the automated content maintained?

Clarilis fully maintains the automation and applies changes to the content as and when content providers update the underlying documents. This includes all updates from the MCL drafting committee and Gowling WLG updates to reflect a fair market view.

Real Estate Plus will be evolved continually in line with the requirements of the commercial real estate market.

Does this replace the Clarilis MCL Lease and Asset Management suites?

No, the core Clarilis MCL Lease and Asset Management suites are still available to purchase without the additional content.

We already subscribe to the Clarilis automated MCL suite, can we upgrade?

Yes.  Please speak to your Clarilis Account Manager or email us at enquiries@clarilis.com.


“I wish I’d had this available when I was practising, I could have avoided the mundane drafting and concentrated on the elements of the transaction that I enjoyed, trained for, and which added value.”
