ENGLISH-SPEAKING NOTAIRES

A French Notaire is a public official appointed by the Ministry of Justice, and not the equivalent of a notary public in Australia. Their functions include the preparation and recording of notarial acts (wills, deeds, titles, marriage contracts etc.), administration and settlement of Estates and holding wills.
