The role of the Notaire
A Notaire is a legal specialist with a public authority mission who draws up authenticated contracts on behalf of his clients. He is self-employed.
Notaire – a public officer
A Notaire is a public officer who operates in every area of law including family, property inheritance, asset, company law, countryside law, local authorities, etc.
He acts on behalf of the State and is appointed by the Minister of Justice, and the fact that an instrument is drawn up by a Notaire is a guarantee of its legality and authenticity. All this means that the Notaires are vested with prerogatives of official authority which they receive from the State.
Under the terms of Article 1 of the Order dated 2 November 1945 regarding the status of Notaires, “Notaires are public officers authorised to record any instrument or contract the parties to which are obliged, or may wish, to invest with the type of authenticity associated with public authority instruments”.
Notaire – a professional for authenticating instruments
The Notaire is empowered to authenticate instruments by affixing his seal and signature. By so doing he officially witnesses the wishes expressed by the signatories and gives hispersonal guarantee regarding the content and date of the instrument. Such instruments then have the legal status of a final judgment. As such, the Notaire is an amicable judge and dispensers of out-of-court justice.
Notaire – a self-employed professional
Although he has a public authority, the Notaire operates on a self-employed basis and is responsible for his own office, thereby providing a modern type of public service that costs nothing to the State. He is a self-employed professional who is paid by his clients (and not the taxpayers) on the basis of a rate fixed by the State for the services he provides.
See the page dedicated to the notaire’s fee.
Notaire – a professional present throughout the country
The Notaire is present throughout the country according to a zoning system worked out by the Minister of Justice to best serve the needs of the population. The Notaire is therefore able to provide a locally-accessible public service focused on legal matters. His office is not subject to “numerus clausus” restrictions which would limit the number of notaires operating at any one time. Instead they are subject to a zoning system which ensures in order to cater to the needs of the population in any given area.
The directory of Notaires contains approximately 9,000 practising Notaires and more than 4,500 practices spread over all the territorial départements of France (including the overseas départements).
