Notary law in Puerto Rico is very different from that of the states of the United States. Our notary practice is under the Civil Law regime from Spanish Civil Law. Notaries have to be lawyers. As such, notaries draft and authorize public instruments. Among them are residential and commercial conveyance and registration of property, state planning, powers of attorney, lease agreements, divorce documents, living wills, and affidavits. Notaries have a sworn duty to remain impartial to all parties and assist as observers while assuring that all legal matters pertaining to negotiations or documents authorized with their intervention are correct. That’s why our notaries are full time lawyers authorized by the Supreme Court of Puerto Rico to act as a Notary. They have full knowledge of our legal system and areas that require a lawyer to intervene as a notary. We have highly trained, licensed practitioners providing a full range of regulated legal services.
