Drafting of Notarial Deeds
Using a lawyer rather than a notary to prepare a title deed is wise for most property buyers or sellers. It commonly reduces legal costs by 0.5% of the purchase or sale price of the property.
Together with our thorough experience investigating property title and conducting Bulgarian legal due diligence, this creates a one-stop shop – we deal with both the formalities and the substantive protection of investors’ interests. Given that Bulgaria still has a somewhat decentralised system for recording title, it helps to smooth the process that we maintain regular relations with the competent governmental authorities.

Our Bulgarian lawyers will assist to certify documents from other jurisdictions for use in Bulgaria and vice versa. The ones most commonly used are: certification as true copies; for the authenticity of signatures on them; for use in legal proceedings; as witness statements; and as sworn statements and affidavits.

Notary letters of invitation
Our lawyers may assist you with the preparation and servicing of notary letters of invitation to another person – your debtor to perform a contractual obligation.
