Other notarial services
In addition to our key practice areas, notaries can record deeds in other fields as well. For example, notaries are responsible for recording:
- Oaths and affidavits
- Acknowledgements of debt and declarations of submission to foreclosure
- Auctions and drawings
- Preparation of property schedules
- Protests of checks and bills of exchange
- Certifications of facts
- Signature certification and issuance of certified copies
Notaries are also involved in administering preventive justice. This includes preparing draft deeds, advising clients, representing them in court and administrative proceedings (BNotO § 24) and holding money and valuables in escrow.
Also, testators often appoint notaries as the executors of their will.
