Who chooses the civil law notary ?

The choice of a civil law notary is totally free. The mission entrusted to the civil law notary is a mission of trust, and the civil law notary is his or her clients’ confidant.

This is why, when several parties intervene in a act, each of them may choose their own notary. To respect that choice, it was decided that when several notaries intervene in a act, the costs of the transaction will not be increased.
