How to Create Document on DocPro?
DocPro is a legal tech platform where members can find, request, share and comment on commonly used documents in Word format. Our documents are reviewed and converted into easy-to-use templates by legal professionals.
Documents range from business contracts to cover letters to wills. DocPro allows you
your document by filling in specific information (e.g. party names) and will automatically complete the document using the information you provide. You can then export or share the documents with ease.
For more please see About Us.
DocPro offers a variety of templates used in common law jurisdictions including legal contracts, business and personal correspondence, corporate resolutions, checklists and guides inter alia for your use. These templates are available at DocPro.com. You can filter your search looking through different categories of documents or browse through document types for contracts, letters and minutes etc.
If the document you require is not available in our library, you may let us know through the “Request a document” function and we will try our best to create it for you. Please note that the following priority will be given upon document request 1. Platinum Member; 2. Gold Member; 3. Silver Member and 4. Associate Member
Note: the documents are provided for reference only and does not constitute legal or professional advice. You should seek separate legal representation if necessary.
DocPro is not merely a document provider, we are a community where members could take part in requesting and sharing commonly used documents in Doc format.
An Interactive Community
DocPro is an interactive community where we encourage you to share and express your ideas. Rewards (Prokens) are granted to members who share documents that are not yet available on DocPro, and those who give their feedback on available documents.
Different Forms of a Document
Finding a specific document is not always easy. It may be hard to assess whether the document is in your favour. For example, a tenant would want a tenancy agreement in favour of the tenant, but most agreements found online are in favour of the landlord. If a tenant unknowingly uses such an agreement, it may put the tenant in an adverse position upon negotiation or dispute.
DocPro provide for different forms of each document. This allows you to find a document more suitable to your need and start you off in a better position.
Common Law Jurisdiction Selection Engine
Most templates currently available online are jurisdiction-specific (most commonly made for use in the U.S.), these documents may be incompatible with other jurisdictions. DocPro documents are drafted in general terms which means they can be used in most English-using common law jurisdictions. DocPro has a proprietary jurisdiction selection engine which helps you pick the appropriate governing law and jurisdiction for the document based on the domiciles of the parties.
DocPro does not Sell your Personal Data Online
DocPro respects your privacy and does not sell your information online to advertisers. Please refer to our Private Policy for more details.
DocPro database covers all documents, not just legal contracts.

If too many search results appear, you can filter them through typing in keywords under “Document Name” or “Description”.
You can search for a specific form of a document. For example, a tenancy agreement may have 3 forms – one in favour of the landlord, one in favour of the tenant, and a neutral form. By entering the desired form under “Document Name” you can easily find a document that benefits your interests.
Another way to narrow your search is to go to the “Advance Search” page. There, you can filter your search based on 1. Type of document 2. Business/Personal/Both 3. Category of document.
Search by categories
If you are not certain which document(s) would be best suited for you, you can browse by categories of documents. Select “Documents” from the home page and a list of all available categories would be displayed.
Step 1: Choose a document
Once you have chosen a document, click on its name and you will be taken to a document summary page with a more detailed description of the document, a preview of it. The number of Prokens it would cost to create the document would be displayed. If you decide this is the document that best fits your needs, click “Create Document” to get started.

You can choose to fill in your personal or business information under your profile by clicking either “Fill using Member’s Information” buttons. For single-party documents, such as letters or resumes, the documents will be automatically filled with your registered information.
Step 4: Complete the questionnaire
