The costs of a notarial deed - Notaio Padova

The costs of a notarial deed comprise: duties and taxes that the Notary collects on behalf of the State;  expenses incurred with the public administration offices for preparing the deed and subsequent obligations to be fulfilled after the signing of the deed; and the Notary’s fee for his services.

The activities carried out by the notary do not end with the signing of the deed by the parties but include also duties, tasks and obligations that are carried out both before and after the conclusion of the agreement.

For instance, for a property purchase deed, the activity of the notary includes:

  • interviews with the parties to explain and clarify the aspects involved in purchasing a property, the town-planning implications, examining the position of the parties and illustrating the possible operative solutions suited to the aims the parties wish to achieve;
  • drafting of the notarial deed introducing all the clasues and phrases that the law envisages for the case at hand;
  • mortgage and land registry checks, that the notary must make in order to identify the property and check its ownership title and make sure that it is free from encumbrances and free from any other charges that the purchaser might have to incur after the purchase;
  • searches in other public registers, where this is envisaged;
  • checking that the parties can exercise their rights;
  • identifying and decidine what actions need to be taken to protect the parties if there are mortgages or other potentially harmful formalities;
  • checking that the agreement is lawful and, where necessary, identify solutions that are consistent with the law, as alternatives to the request made by the parties;
  • specify what taxes apply and any the other amount due;
  • in relation to the financial status of the family examine how it may be influenced by the purchase;
  • registration obligations and communication of the data to the competent public offices;
  • carrying out the registration formalities;
  • analysing the “private international law” aspects, where foreign laws were to apply for cases in which one of the parties were to be a foreign citizen or lives abroad or where the case at hand involves international law in any way;
  • issue copies and carry out the formalities for the conservation of the document.
