Real estate land transactions, qc.

Good day, <p>I would like to know if a notarized document stating to give a plot of land to the persons mentioned is a legal document that would lawfully have to be followed in accordance with the pesons and notary involved. Is the notary obliged to give advice to all party's involved on the contract. I am looking for free advice to start with but would be considering hiring a lawer or notary if needed for this particular advice and or future work in the Montreal region.</p>

As a general rule, Notaries must act in good faith informing all parties of their rights and obligations in a signed notarial act. They cannot act for the benefit of one signing party to the detriment of the other. Hope this answers your question.

<br />&nbsp;Thankyou for repying. <br />Yes and No. For&nbsp;example the notarial act must be followed, otherwise the notarial document can be followed by a court action or similair. The notairal act is a lawfully binding contract?

If the Notarial act was done with a problem affecting its constitution(ie party was not whom they claimed they were, etc) or someone lied, you can attack a Notarial act. Otherwise, I don't see much of a recourse. Good luck.
