THE REAL ESTATE AGENCY OF CURACAO TELLS: THE NOTARY ON CURAÇAO
The notary on Curacao
The Real Estate Agency of Curacao tells; A notary helps people to reach legally valid and binding agreements. For example, about the purchase or sale of your house, drawing up a cohabitation contract or business related to your company. If you buy a house on Curacao, the legal delivery will always go through a notary on Curacao. You cannot go to a civil-law notary in the Netherlands or in a country other than Curacao. You can, however, have a power of attorney legalized by another civil-law notary so that you do not have to be present at the signing. We are happy to advise you about the possibilities.
The civil-law notary provides legal advice and takes into account the interests of all involved. A civil-law notary is expert, independent and impartial. The notary records agreements in a notarial deed. In this way it is always clear to everyone what the agreements are. If doubt arises later, the notarial deed provides clarity. In Curacao, a notary is a by the government approved and by court legalised position. There are only seven positions.
Rates notary Curacao
The rates of the notary on Curacao laid down in a decision of the Court of Justice. That is why it is virtually impossible to negotiate your settlement. The seven notaries on Curacao are systematically understaffed, which means that the lead times of the notarial services can be long.
We have a copy of the decision of the rates on file. We will gladly send these to you. If you want to know what the Buyers cost are when you buy a house on Curacao, read our blog about this.
Choosing a notary on Curacao
In the more than 16 years of the existence of our real estate agency, we have now worked with all notaries. We are happy to advise you which notary is best for which service to use. Also, not all civil-law notaries have a Euro account, which is so easy for a transaction in Euro and above all financially beneficial. This prevents the 1% license fee that the Central Bank of Curacao levies on the entire amount when money is exported. Get good advice from your broker, also about the currency in which you do your transaction.
