Re: Translation of house purchase contract at Notary Question

Yes, he's very helpful and that gets him repeat business when we need documents witnessing, etc. Had him do our Swiss wills for us last year and he witnessed my Life Certificate for my British pension a few months ago.

Re: Translation of house purchase contract at Notary Question

Probably won't help you since the "notary" in the case of conveyancing is the public official responsible for the land register where your property is located. In cantons where the notary system is public (e.g. Zurich), the land registry and notary are the same office and it is literally the notary that handles the transaction. In cantons where the notary system is private (e.g. Graubünden), the land registry is a separate public office. In other words, you won't have a choice of notary for the actual transaction.

Whilst the "notary" (land registry conveyancing official) will go through the contract with you at the appointment anyway, it's much more likely you'll get a copy of the draft contract ahead of time to go through in peace and quiet and request amendments be made prior to the appointment at the land registry. Moreover, don't forget that whilst the notaries are very good at explaining the meaning of the various clauses, they may not know what "baggage" (for want of a better word) you bring with you from the system in other countries you've lived in. For instance, the concept of "Bauhandwerkerpfandrecht" is completely alien in the UK but completely normal in CH
