The notary public takes care of all notarial documents, the completion of later procedures (transfers to registers), and the safekeeping of documents.
The main job of the notary public is to draw up notarial documents. On a document, the notary certifies that the contracts are genuine, which means that they have particular power as evidence and in terms of enforceability.
Drawing up a notarial document is a complex matter and the notary public bears the liability. At the same time, the notary public takes care of the completion of later procedures (transfers to registers), and keeps documents safe.
In partnership with the notary public, our team collects all the documents necessary to draw up a notarial deed for the purchase and sale of real estate:
- Tax certificate for the transfer of property
- Social security contributions certificate for the transfer of property (if one of the parties is self-employed).
- ENFIA certificate regarding value (for an agricultural parcel of land in the last four years, for land or property since 2013).
- Certificate of property duty from the relevant municipality.
- Certificate of contributions and ownership (depending on when the property was entered on the town plan) from the relevant municipality.
- Certificate 4495 for unauthorised structures, an energy performance certificate and a topographic plan with HGRS87 coordinates from a civil engineer.
- Extract from the National Cadastre register or a cadastral survey certificate depending on the status of the National Cadastre in the region where the property is located.
- Certificate that no tax is due if the seller’s title of ownership derives from parental transfer or gift after 1 January 1995 or a certified copy of the deed of parental transfer/gift up to 31 December 1994.
- Deed of payment if the seller’s title of ownership concerns a sale with a mortgage and land registry transcription if it had a suspensive condition.
