Government measures, which have been in place since the beginning of the health crisis, continue to evolve as the days go by.

But what about notarized deeds? We give you more information in our weekly bulletin.

For all our clients, for whom we are ever-present at the other end of the line, we have developed two weekly reports in order to keep track of real estate news in the face of the recent turmoil caused by the Coronavirus. 

In our last column, our speaker Maître Couturier, President of the Association Professionnelle des Notaires du Québec, addressed the topic of notarial deeds, and more specifically on the implementation of the recently authorized electronic signature.

In fact, since April 1st of this year, notaries are considered by the Government of Quebec as essential players to conclude urgent and necessary real estate transactions.
