Deed of transfer

Deed of transfer

The deed of transfer (deed of delivery) of property is drawn up by the civil-law notary. The provisions in the deed must correspond to the agreements from the purchase agreement, as made up between seller and buyer. After drawing up the deed of transfer, the notary will discuss it with the buyer and seller and will explain the main elements. After this, the deed of delivery will be signed by the buyer, the seller and the notary.

Signing the purchase agreement is not sufficient to become the legal owner of a house. When you buy a house, you only become the owner of the house when it has been delivered to you. This is done with a deed of transfer at the notary. A deed of transfer is also called a deed of delivery.

 

The deed of transfer is registered in the Land Registry after signing. After registration, the buyer is registered as owner at the Land Registry and this is visible to everyone.

Verification by the notary

There is always a small risk that a property will be sold by someone who is not authorized to do so or the plot and the house are not correctly described. If this is the case, the house cannot be delivered to the buyer. To ensure a smooth transfer of the property and to prevent things from going wrong, we carry out a number of checks.

The notary verifies, among other things:

 

  • Who owns the house;
  • Whether there are attachments on the house;
  • Whether all legal conditions regarding the purchase of a house have been met;
  • Whether the plot and the house are well described.

 

When the buyer, the seller and the notary have signed the deed of transfer, the notary registers the deed of transfer in the public registers of the Land Registry. From that moment on, the buyer is the new owner of the house.

Voor de aankoop van ons nieuwe huis bij dit kantoor terechtgekomen. Snelle en duidelijke communicatie. We hadden nog wijzigingen op het laatste moment in een document dat was geen enkel probleem. Zeer flexibel en denken goed mee. Adviseren ook waar nodig in hoe documenten op te stellen. Wij zijn zeer tevreden en komen zeker terug wanneer we weer een notaris nodig hebben
