Covid-19 and the passing of notarial deeds
24/03/2020

In response to the current situation pursuant to Covid-19, the Royal Federation for Belgian Notaries has issued strict guidelines for the Belgian Notaries. 

In order to avoid physical contact and the spreading of the virus as much as possible, Belgian Notaries are only allowed to pass notarial deeds if such deeds are extremely urgent or if the financial consequences would be too big should the deed not be passed.

The assessment whether a deed is extremely urgent is done on a case-by-case basis by the notary involved.
 
The guidelines are currently in place until 5 April 2020 and will be prolonged if necessary.

In the event deeds are passed in accordance with the above-mentioned guidelines, notaries request, if possible, to grant a special power of attorney to the employees or staff of the notary office, in order to enable them to pass the deed without physical contact with clients.

In the event you have a notary deed planned in the near future, we advise you to contact us or your notary in this respect.
