The Notary's (Notaire) mission

The notary is a public official and given the title of Maitre. The notaire is highly qualified in the French legal system, like sollicitor, and is able to advise about property, family and succession, and corporate laws.

The state confers power on the notaire to legalise property purchase transactions which cannot be enforced by any other means. The notaire is deemed to be a public official and provides security to the contracts he supervises and is liable for his professional acts.
Drafting of official acts is the heart of the notarial activity. These acts are qualified "authentic acts" according to the French laws and they have considerable advantages:

  • their signature by the notary is proof of their content and their date.
  • they are for the obligations that they contain executables without a decision of preliminary justice.
  • they are recorded and kept indefinitely, having the character of public archives.

In addition to drafting offcial acts, the notary has always had a mission in the field of: negotiation and real estate appraisal, asset management and family mediation.

These varied interventions cannot be done without the respect of the rules of ethics and deontology. The fundamental principles such as: neutrality, objectivity and impartiality control the mission of the notary at the service of all. Adapted contemporary structures and new skills are renewing this profession, which remains at the service of social harmony and economic efficiency.

Your notary can help you and advise you, do not hesitate to consult him.
