Notary fees

The fees for notarial activities are laid down by the legislator in the Court and Notary Costs Act.

The fees actually incurred are basically made up of a notarisation fee, an execution fee and fees for secondary activities of the notary, e.g. for monitoring the purchase price due date or costs for depositing in a trust account (notary escrow account). In addition, there are expenses for postage, file dispatch, copying costs and land register inspections.

A few example fees are listed below as an indication. However, the actual fees may differ. The legal value added tax is still to be added.
