Polish Public Notary

September 25, 2011, 1:34 am

Public notaries in Poland are persons of trust, who prepare official documents and offer their clients the guarantee of an authenticated document. Public notaries in Poland are a leading legal category with numerous responsibilities, such as informing, creating documents or making deposits. There are almost 1,300 notary offices and more than 1,500 public notaries in Poland. Public notaries in Poland are appointed by the Minister of Justice, after consulting with the local notarial chamber. The regional notarial chambers are under the law of the Court of Appeals and they form the National Chamber of Notaries. The Warsaw Chamber of Civil Law Notaries is the greatest of the local associations and works as a center for decision-making, a meeting place and a regulating body. There is also a Council Chamber that is responsible for all decisions and controls of offices. The president of the local Council Chamber is elected for a period of three years.


The requirements for becoming a public notary in Poland involve nationality and education. A person who wants to be a Polish notary must have Polish citizenship and must be of impeccable character. A candidate for public notary in Poland is eligible if he is older than 26 and holds a Master of Arts degree in law studies at a university in Poland or at a foreign university recognised in Poland. There is also the necessity of a period of training and a three-year job as an assistant notary in Poland. For instance, the Warsaw Chamber of Notaries conducts training groups for applicants who want to become public notaries in Poland. Nevertheless, a future public notary in Poland must pass the notarial examination. There is also a special category of professional experts who may be appointed as public notaries in Poland, such as professors of legal science, judges, prosecutors, advocates or legal advisers.


The main duty of a public notary in Poland is to notarize documents in order to certify the validation of the contract according to the law. This happens only if the two parties sign the papers in the presence of a Polish public notary. Other services offered by a public notary in Poland include drafting notarial deeds, preparing protests relating to promissory notes, accepting deposits and receiving declarations regarding inheritance.
