The role of a Notary when purchasing a property
To legally seal and finalize a sale, a notarial deed is required. Such a deed will be drafted by a notary. A notary is a person specifically authorized and trained to facilitate the process of buying a home. This entails real estate transactions such as complex paperwork and other documents such as the notarial deeds. A notarial deed is a public document, which states the content of a particular legal action and constitutes a security measure for the interests of the parties involved.
With other words, the responsibility and function of a Notary is to prepare, attest, authenticate, verify and certify deeds and other documents.
A notary is in charge of the following;
- Sales deeds of housing
- Mortgage deeds
- Auction deeds
- Deeds of delivery
In addition to drafting and signing deeds, a notary ensures that all deeds, provided with a date, are saved and that a copy is made.
