Buying a home is undoubtedly one of the most important economic transactions in a person’s life and, to better safeguard citizens, the State requires the contract to be signed by an impartial and specialised public official: the notary.
Purchase proposal, preliminary contract, deposit, mortgage, tax aspects, deed … there are many operations, rules, checks, documents, commitments and types of purchase.
The notary, by law, protects both the buyer and seller, ensuring that the purchase of the property takes place in compliance with all legal regulations. So it is advisable to contact your trusted notary from the very beginning of the negotiations, not only at the end, at the time of the final deed. Before signing a purchase proposal or a preliminary contract, which are already binding and conclusive, it is good to have your notary by your side, so that he can protect and advise you on how to carry out the entire process in total safety.
The choice of the notary is free (it must not be imposed by the real estate agency or the bank providing a mortgage loan) and is up to the buyer unless otherwise agreed with the seller.
