Notarial Services

As an organ of the preventive administration of justice, the notary has a position independent of the state and of the parties in a transaction. In this capacity he advises the parties involved neutrally and comprehensively, making sure that the contracts are balanced. He also supervises payments and takes care of entries in the land and other registers.

The law stipulates that a notary must be involved in certain legal transactions that have far-reaching consequences for the parties. This includes, for instance, the conclusion of real property sale and purchase agreements and the establishment of a corporation. Without notarization, such legal transactions are null and void.

The scope of a notary’s work also includes the certification of signatures and copies, as well as the notarization of actual events (e.g. shareholder meetings) and the issuance of certificates regarding facts that the notary has witnessed in the course of his duties.

Unlike to the activity of lawyers, the notary's fees are not at the disposal of the parties involved, but are based on the requirements of the German Act on Court Fees and Notary Fees (Gerichts- und Notarkostengesetz - GNotKG), which applies equally to all notaries in Germany.

Our experienced notaries are supported by an established team of highly versed notarial employees and are available as impartial and independent legal advisors in all matters concerning the drafting of contracts and other legal transactions.

Below you will find an overview of the services provided by our notaries. For further information, please visit the information portal of the Federal Chamber of Notaries (Bundesnotarkammer).
