Notary Services: Real Estate Property
THE ROLE OF THE NOTARY
In these difficult times characterized by financial crises, more and more investors in Germany are turning to the security implied by the “concrete gold” of the housing market. Acquiring real estate, however, should involve careful consideration, regardless of whether it is for one’s own use or as an investment.
Assuming a loan can mean being subject to debt for decades. According to the German Civil Code, German law therefore requires that real estate sale and purchase agreements must be notarized. Otherwise, the purchase agreement will be invalid.
As the holder of a public office, Notary Delia Reinders is neutral and independent. She therefore does not represent the interests of one but neutrally advises both parties. Her exceptional qualifications allow her to provide legal counsel and advice at the highest level and, in so doing, secure the creation of a fair and balanced contract. This process prevents later disputes at the outset.
Additionally, Notary Reinders helps facilitate that the purchase agreement is concluded smoothly and soundly. In Germany, a notary plays an especially important role when a contract is to be concluded between a consumer and a company. Notary Reinders thereby ensures that those who are not as contract savvy are not disadvantaged and will not unknowingly enter into any unilateral risks.
We advise non-German speaking parties in English. Dual language notarization (English/German) is available, and translators can be involved for notarization in other languages.
