Tools for Citizens

Today, numerous working and retired European citizens decide to live outside their countries of origin.
As a result, in their new countries of residence, these expatriates may be faced with some issues, such as: how to purchase property, how to deal with conditions of vulnerability or incapacity and how to handle succession in case of death.
It therefore seemed essential to CAE to provide citizens concerned with simple answers to the most frequent questions concerning these three four areas: property, vulnerable persons, successions and couples in Europe, knowing that for the member states of the European Union, answers can be found on the website of the Council of Notariats of the European Union http://www.notaries-of-europe.eu under the menu “Practical Tools”.

The "Guidelines on strengthening gender equality in notarial practices - South-East Europe" have been published

22/01/2019

Co-publication of FAO and GIZ (Deutsche Gesellscha für Internationale Zusammenarbeit GmbH), the “Guidelines on strengthening gender equality in notarial practices - South East Europe” are intended as a practical assistance document that notaries can use to strengthen gender equality in the services that they provide.

It offers quick and easy steps, and checklists to help notaries exercise due diligence in the services they provide under the law, by identifying and protecting the rights of all women and daughters with a legal interest in the service.

It also provides additional information for notaries wishing to enhance their knowledge and understanding of the gender implications of the services they provide, and tips on how to engage in advocacy.

It builds up on the VGGT and several technical guides and aims to contribute to the achievement of the SDGs indicators 5.a.2, 5.a.1 and 1.4.2, among others.

The International Union of Notaries and the Chamber of Notaries of the participating countries contributed to this Guidelines with their practical knowledge and specific examples to the quality of the document. 

The International Union of Notaries completed the peer review of the document and is committed to support the implementation and further elaborate the guide to cover other regions and prepare a global guide for the notaries.
