The notary plays an important role in the successful completion of a real estate transaction, including by examining the titles. One of the notary’s main responsibilities is to draw up the deed of sale and the deed of loan.
To this end, the notary will verify, among other things, whether:
The seller is the real owner;
He has the right and the ability to sell;
His spouse or another person must consent to the sale;
The lot measurements are accurate;
Any rights-of-way exist, etc.
GOOD TO KNOW
If you had to finance your purchase, you must provide proof that you have taken out home insurance for an amount equal to or greater than the mortgage.
Once the deed of sale is signed, the notary will register the transaction in the land register, which will make public your ownership right and the rights held by your mortgage lender.
