Computerised Requisitions on Title 2021

CORT2021 contains the Law Society's 2019 (Revised) Edition of Requisitions on Title - revised in October 2020. It also contains many letters and forms directly related to the Requisitions including all of the Family Law Declarations, the latest editions of the Contract for Sale and the Law Society's explanatory memoranda and FAQs relating to the Requisitions and the Conditions of Sale.

There is no additional charge for users with current CORT licences for any version of CORT.

CORT2021 Requisitions on Title 

If you have an old version of CORT

Because of the changes made by the Law Society, CORT2021 is not compatible with previous CORT versions. CORT2021 is installed as a new program and your older version of CORT will remain in place in case you need access to old sets of Requisitions.  

So, you will have 2 CORT icons, a new CORT2021 one and an older one on your desktop for as long as you want to have access to older sets.

To install CORT2021 for the first time, you need to take 2 steps:

STEP 1: Download and install CORT2021. A Demo Version will be installed and you can use it to see how easy it is to use CORT.

If you have a previous version, DO NOT install the new CORT2021 in the same folder - it should be installed in a different folder called CORT2021 (this will be the default folder name presented during installation).

STEP 2: To convert the Demo version to a fully operational version, Login or Register, pay the appropriate licence fee and CORT will retrieve your licence file automatically from the website.

Full instructions below.


You can download & install CORT2021 right now. You can use all features of CORT2021 but some restrictions will apply until the appropriate Licence Fee has been paid. A Licence File will convert it to a fully operational version.

Your first step is to download and install CORT2021 to see how it works. Then you can come back here to Login and/or Register to get a Licence File (full instructions under 'Next Step').

  Download & Install CORT2021 now
(do only once for a network install)

The first time you click on the icon to run CORT2021, right click on it and choose "Run as Administrator". This applies to all PC's, whether it's a Single PC or a Network install

Install on a single PC

Click on the downloaded file to start the installation. Follow the instructions and when asked for the name of the install folder, make sure it is "CORT2021". (DO NOT install to 'CORT2019' because that would overwrite your old version of CORT). CORT2021 will be installed on your local C: drive and you will see a shortcut icon on your desktop. You are ready to go!

If you had a previous version of CORT, then it will still be there. Because Requisitions have changed, the new version of CORT is not compatible with the old one so you will have two icons, one for the new CORT2021 and one for the old one. All new sets are created in CORT2021 and you can access old sets on the old version.

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 (DO NOT install to 'CORT2019' because that would overwrite your old version of CORT). 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 "cort2021.exe" program in the original installation folder.

If you have any uncertaintly about this, ask your tech support who will be familiar with your pc/network setup and can do this very quickly and easily.


Use mapped drive in shortcut. For eg. "F:\Server\Apps\CORT2021\cort2021.exe".

A UNC path like "\\SERVER\Apps\CORT2021" can cause problems.

  Next Step

Registered CORT User

When you first run CORT2021 it will ask you for your registered email address. It will then automatically retrieve your Licence File from the CORT website.

If you don't know what your registered email address is, run your old version of CORT and click on the 'Licence' button.

New CORT User

1. Register       Register
New Users have to Register to create an account. The on-screen instructions will take you through that process.

2. Pay Licence Fee
When registered, you will be directed to the Options Page where you can choose your licence options and pay the appropriate licence fee.

Once payment is made, CORT2021 will automatically retrieve the Licence File when you next run it.

Payment can be made with any credit card - it does not have to be one registered in your company name.

Licence File

CORT2021 automatically retrieves your Licence File from the CORT website. However, if that fails for any reason, you will also receive a copy of the licence file, CORT.lic, by email. You can save the emailed copy into the folder where CORT2021 was installed (overwriting the existing one).

Your CORT2021 will now be a fully operational version (with full access to any work that was done on it as a demo version).
