Re: Translator: notary for house purchase

Perhaps find a notary that can speak English. There are plenty in the Zurich area. Also, as the buyer, you have the right to choose the Notary, and this is very important since the seller may put in clauses that could be detrimental to you in the future, and they may not be disclosed if you don't have a legal background to understand them or are glossed over in the reading of the deed.

It's much easier and cheaper for the seller to use his Notary but even if he offers to pay the notarial fees, do not accept and use your own.

A final piece of advice, if he wants you to pay a deposit, only pay it to your own notary, not to the seller or his notary.
