USA – Notary Public for Property Transactions

Property Transactions in the United States of America

United States of AmericaIn the United States of America, legal documents prepared for property transactions generally require notary public services and notarisation in some form or another irrespective of whether you are buying property or selling property. While notarisation in the US is a fairly common practice, it is less common in Australia. In the US, a notary is similar to a justice of the peace in Australia but in Australia, a notary is a different role normally filled by a senior lawyer.

So if your US attorney sends documents for you to sign and notarise in Australia, what do you do?

Notarising your documents in Australia

You have a few options available to you.

  1. You could travel to the US to sign the documents in front of a US notary;
  2. You could visit the closest US Consulate in your closest capital city; or
  3. You could avoid the additional expense and delay of those options and use our notary public services.
