CBA-CLE Fillable Forms Frequently Asked Questions

What are CBA-CLE Fillable Forms?

  • Real Estate

Each one is carefully crafted, reviewed, and continually updated by Colorado attorneys who are experts in their field. Subscriptions are available for a single library or multiple  all libraries. 


Why should I subscribe to a library? 

With a subscription, you are ensured you have the most up-to-date forms as per current state regulations. All your necessary documents are neatly organized by content and downloadable from the CLE Dashboard 24/7. They are easy to fill in and edit in Word and/or PDF.

Once I subscribe, do I have to pay extra to receive updates? Are updates included in my subscription?

Your subscription includes all updates during your subscription year. When forms are updated by the state, your forms library on your CLE Dashboard will be modified as well. Never worry, you have the most up-to-date forms available.

 

Can I purchase individual forms?

No. Individual forms are part of the collection and only available with a library subscription.

 

Where can I find the Terms of Service?

The Terms of Service for CBA-CLE Fillable Forms are available on our website

 

How do I access the forms?

They are located under the FORMS tab in your CLE Dashboard.

 

What formats are the forms?

Most forms are offered in both Word and Adobe PDF, and the fields can easily be filled in in both.

 

You may modify Word formats by changing, deleting, and/or moving text; the Adobe PDFs have fillable text boxes for additional client and case information.

 

If you need to modify the language in a form, you will most likely want to use the Word version but note that we do not support changes to the formatting of the Word forms.

 

If a form is a standard form in which you won't be modifying any language but merely filling in the blanks, a PDF version is preferable. However, the Word form also can be used for this purpose.

 

When prompted, should I open or save the file?

When you attempt to view a form in the library, you may get a prompt to either open the file or save it to your computer. We recommend opening it to ensure you are using the most current version.

 

How safe are the downloadable forms?

Our fillable forms do not contain any embedded scripts or other potentially malicious content, so they are safe for the user.

 

What is the version of Word? 

Most of the forms were created with Word 2007 and above (.docx), but some of the forms were created with Word 2003 (.doc). 


What is the version of Adobe?

Many applications open a PDF without providing full functionality to the fillable forms. For this reason, we recommend you open the fillable forms in Adobe Acrobat Version 9 or later, or Adobe Reader Version 8 or later. Troubleshooting tips for common issues in fillable forms 

 

Why can't I save my completed Adobe Acrobat form?

If you do not own Adobe Acrobat software, but just have Adobe Reader, you will not be able to save your form in PDF. If you don’t have access to Adobe Acrobat, download your form in Word in order to be able to save it.

 

What if I can't edit the Adobe Acrobat form fields?

Select edit at the top of the page, then preferences. In the preferences screen, click on forms, and check the radio button under Highlight Color "Show border hover color for fields." See the image below.
