This is the ROLE of the Notary in Madagascar. By the Diana Real estate agency Diego-Suarez.

Well known in his intervention, the Notary is a publicly appointed official established to receive the acts to which the parts owe or want to give the character of authenticity to the acts of the public authority to insure the date, keep, preserve the deposit and to deliver from the court’s decision that mentions the enforcement order and expedition.
Here, is to refer as an authentic act, the act which is valid until improbation, its contents noticed by the public notary is worth writ of execution, it makes of the double assumption of legality and accuracy and has a probative value on  the national territory.
In the current world full of doubt, the public notary insures the legal safety(security), so in the pyramid of the proofs the authentic act is in the summit, it is the guarantee offered by the Publicly appointed official that he is.

The public notary, as an impartial writer of the act should be sought by parts, so that they are insured to sign a well-balanced act, respecting the law and the tax system.
In Madagascar the public notary has served even before the 60’s. At that time the job was the privilege of some elites and french notable. Shortly after the institution of the first Republic, the Notary’s practice took a new from now,  Malagasy were able to reach the profession.

Texts governing the notary’s practice were adopted law 2007.022 of December 12th, 2007 carrying status of the Notary’s practice showing the will of the profession to adapt itself to the Malagasy social reality as well as to the socioeconomic development.
On the international level, the malagasy Notary’s practice tries constantly hard to conform to the standards all over the world imposed. For that purpose except for its membership in the French-speaking Notary’s practice the November 2013 was admitted official member of the INTERNATIONAL UNION OF the LATIN NOTARY’S PRACTICE ( UINL) having satisfied the required strict conditions.
Except for the law 2007.026 of December 12th, 2007 carrying status of the Notary’s practice, the function of the public notary in Madagascar is so very regulated by a ministerial decree which was adopted to fix the rated price of the public notary.


  • The public notary guarantees the legal safety (security) of the acts which he establishes.
    Notarial acts establish a reliable proof on the existence of the rights of the person who uses the service of the public notary.

So, he advises and recommends rationally and expresses his objective, impartial opinion on the legal consequences to his customers.
