THORNHILL, ON, December 8, 2020 – An extended partnership between Ontario proptech innovators Protect Your Boundaries Inc. (PYB) and Teranet Inc. is accelerating the technology and data revolution disrupting the real estate and property sectors.

Industry leaders are looking for ways to adapt and continue to add value for their clients. Protect Your Boundaries and Teranet are here to help by making new tools and resources available to provide homebuyers and sellers with the information they need to mitigate risk and close deals faster while protecting everyone involved.”
Protect Your Boundaries is Ontario’s most comprehensive online resource for identifying, resolving, and preventing land title and property boundary issues that can complicate and jeopardize real estate transactions. GeoWarehouse® is a web-based property information solution that provides state-of-the-art mapping, research tools and reports for real estate across the province.

The partnership will enable land professionals across Ontario to purchase Protect Your Boundaries Buyer’s Reports, Seller’s Reports and Easement Reports through the GeoWarehouse® e-Store. These reports aggregate information from official land records into an easy-to-read document for each property. The GeoWarehouse® solution will also provide access to PYB’s easement counter technology, which is powered by an algorithm that shows how many easements affect each and every property in Ontario. Protect Your Boundaries will also be developing new GeoWarehouse® course content for PYB’s industry-leading BoundaryWise Academy certification program.
