Computerised Objections & Requisitions on Title
The Law Society's 2015 Edition of Objections & Requisitions on Title is incorporated into CORT. In addition to handling the Requisitions on Title, CORT enables you to automatically generate many letters and forms directly related to the Requisitions including the latest 2017 Edition of the Contract for Sale and the 2017 Sale & Purchase Pre-contract Questionnaires published jointly by the Law Society and the Dublin Solicitors Bar Association.
For those who installed CORT before the 20th February 2017 there is an upgrade available which adds references to Tax Types and Eircode in addresses and also adds new document templates to CORT Docs including some newly released 2017 versions as follows:
Contract for Sale 2017 Edition and Non-Title Info (Word doc)
General Conditions 2017 (PDF)
Ltr to client - authority for Title Deeds (Word doc)
SALE - Pre-contract questionnaire 2017 Edition (PDF)
PURCHASE - Pre-contract questionnaire 2017 Edition (PDF)

CORT Requisitions on Title
The latest version of CORT, CORT2015, is not compatible with previous versions of CORT because the Law Society of Ireland changed the Requisitions on Title in July 2015. When you install CORT2015, it will be a completely new program and your old version of CORT will remain in place in case you need access to old sets of Requisitions.
Do I have to install the new CORT?
The Law Society Requisitions on Title were changed in July 2015, so, if you have a version of CORT earlier than that then, yes, you have to install the new version of CORT. The Law Society recommends that practitioners use the new edition of Objections & Requisitions on Title in all new conveyancing transactions starting on or after 1 July 2015.
How much does it cost?
The Annual Licence & Support Fee covers the software licence, all support, upgrades when available and, for every user, a copyright licence charge for the Objections & Requisitions on Title which we pay to the Law Society of Ireland who are the copyright owners.

Step 2: Come back here after that to Login or Register and get your Licence File. (this will convert Demo to full version)
Full instructions below.
Download(This relates to new install - see bottom of page for Upgrade)
You can download & install CORT right now. You can use all features of CORT but output is restricted to 8 pages of the Requisitions and CORT documents are scrambled. A Licence File will convert it to a fully operational version. Your first step is to download and install CORT, then come back here and read 'Next Step' for further instructions.
Install on a single PC
Click on the downloaded file to start the installation. During installation, keep clicking next, accepting all the defaults and CORT will be installed on your local C: drive. When finished, you will see a shortcut icon on your desktop and you are ready to go!
Install on a network
Click on the downloaded file to start the installation. During installation, you are given the option to choose where you want CORT installed. For network setup, you should browse and select the network folder where you want CORT installed. When completed, you will see a shortcut icon on your desktop and you are ready to go!
To enable other users to access it, DO NOT 'Download & Install' again - you just need to create a shortcut on their desktop pointing to the "cort2015.exe" program in the original installation folder.
If you have any uncertaintly about this, it is a task your own tech support will be able to do very quickly and easily for you.
Use mapped drive in shortcut. For eg. "F:\Server\Apps\CORT2015\cort2015.exe".
A UNC path like "\\SERVER\Apps\CORT2015" can cause problems.
