Italian Notary – Notaio

Q Question:  What is the role of an Italian Notary public (Notaio) in Italian property transactions?


A Answer: Italian notaries are legal professionals who act as public officers in Italian real estate transactions. 

Property transfer contracts must be signed in front of a notary. As public officers, Italian notaries conduct formal document checks as well as confirm the identities of the buyer and the seller. Also, notaries check the parties’ respective powers and entitlement to be part of the transaction.
