I signed my Compromis Thurs 29/07/21. I expected the 10 day cooling off period to start that day or the next and that la note would do nothing until that period was over.
I was surprised to find that A] the cooling off period didn’t start until a few days into the following week. B] La note did call for a doc before the cooling off period ended, so she was actually on the case.
La note has to get it all wrapped up by FRI 15/10/21, a dealine imposed by her own office, I believe. That’s 78 days, inc w/e’s and any fiestas.
A vendor and a seller are the same animal, lexicographically. Are there two notaires on the selling side? That would defo make for delay.
Or have you, the buyers, engaged your own notaire? As the notaire is a civil servant, not a solicitor, working to ensure that the conveyance is within the legislation for property transfers, the advice I have read and am operating with is that it’s not necessary to engage your own notaire - it only makes for delay.
