Sonstige Tätigkeiten des Notars

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.
