How Does A Notary Public Help With Real Estate Transfer?

June 29, 2016 | Published by

When buying a house in Vancouver, a notary public will act with your best interests at heart to secure the transaction. Just as a buyer would be uneasy handing over a large sum of money to an unknown seller, the seller may also be uncomfortable releasing their property’s title without a guarantee of payment.

There is risk and uncertainty on both sides – buyer and seller – that is alleviated when a notary public works as an intermediary.

A notary public acts as an intermediary to ensure that the transaction takes place, and that payment is delivered on time.

This entire process is known as a conveyance, and we have provided a breakdown of how conveyancing takes place in Vancouver. Not only does a notary public provide you peace of mind during what is most likely the biggest purchase of your life, but there are also benefits to hiring a notary that you may not have considered:

  1. Your Notary Protects You – Your notary acts as your representative, and is responsible for handling the finances or transfer of title during the conveyancing process. This means that you don’t run the risk of dealing with unexpected setbacks.
  2. Your Notary Has Experience – This may be your first time buying or selling a home – but a seasoned notary will have had plenty of experience filing the correct documents and taking the proper steps.
    • At Vancouver Downtown Notary, we ensure that all the correct paperwork is filled – even ones that you may not even be aware of. It is our job to ensure that your funds are properly calculated, and that all the correct paperwork is in place for a smooth transaction.
