Authentic electronic act

Since 2012, the French Notariat has set up the Authentic Act in electronic form.

The legal status of the notarial document and the advice of the notary remain unchanged but the paper support is replaced by a computer file. This document, completely digitalized, contains the same guarantees of security, conservation and availability as the “paper” format.

During the closing, the act is presented on screen and can be followed by all parties simultaneously. Once the act is validated, the notary collects the signatures on an electronic tablet. Following the signature, the act is sent instantly to dedicated servers for conservation.

The authentic electronic act is time saving and allow a fluid reading for the parties.


DAVID NOTAIRES holds a notarial information-sharing platform, enabling the collection, management and delivery of documents in a secure way, through individual passwords and strict administration of the shared database.

This tool is very useful when monitoring complex cases (institutional, corporate real estate development, off-plan sales).


DAVID NOTAIRES is equipped with a videoconference room.

The live video-conferencing system is very useful for clients for whom regular travel is difficult and/or expensive, especially for international clients.

Videoconferencing is also a great tool for preparatory meetings, enabling all parties to work simultaneously on shared documents.
