— ROLE OF THE NOTARY
The notary, a public officer
‘Notaries are public officers, empowered to receive all acts and contracts which the parties must or wish to make authentic, as acts resulting from the public authority’, according to the terms of Article 1 of the Ordinance of 2 November 1945 relating to the status of the Notary.
Effectiveness of authentic deeds
The effectiveness of an authentic deed is characterised by :
- The definite date: the authentic act is a full proof of its date, contrary to the private act, which, in order to have this status, must be registered with the Tax Authorities ;
- Evidenciary effect : the authentic document confers an indisputable character on the facts stated and recorded by the notary, which entitles it to take the first place in the hierarchy of proofs established by the Civil Code ;
- Enforceability: an authentic deed is enforceable by the operation of Law; it has the same effectiveness as a court decision.
Storing authentic deeds
Authentic deeds are guaranteed to be stored for a period of seventy-five years. In the digital age, the authentic deed, a traditional tool in our French legal arsenal, has been modernised with the use and recognition of the electronic authentic deed.
Notary fees are strictly regulated and are subject to a rate set by Decree No.2016-230 of 26 February 2016 and the Order of 26 February 2016.
They include :
- Proportional and fixed fees applicable to the majority of deeds and due diligence (property sales, donations, inheritance. etc.)
- The fees set freely in accordance with the client’s consent
