Certification of signatures ?

Post by Nifty »

Can anybody tell me why a notaire can authorise of confirm that a a person’s signature and their identity match but a mayor can not?

Because a notaire has professional responsibilities to carry out all sorts of things, and that means if they break the law or lie they would loose their careers etc. Mayors swear to serve their community, and deal with public finances properly etc etc but don’t think they have any more legal responsibility if they certify a signatures than any other human being.

Difference between professionals, who have a duty of care, and administrators - which is all a mayor is really.

Our current Mayor and previous Mayors have signed and certified POA documents for buying and selling property.

Not enough detail from Nifty to answer the question.

I am going to stick my neck out and guess that the request for the verification has come from the UK and that they have translated Public Notary without realising that a Notaire is not the same thing and that in France a Maire is habilité to witness a signature and confirm a persons identity.

When we are asked to prove that we are still alive to UK pensions we get the formed signed and stamped at the town hall - sometimes by the mayors secretary.

Some banks are insisting that a notarised copy of a passport be sent to them - or alternatively you can just pop into your local branch of the bank with your passport. The cretins do not realise that that might just have a few minor issues for anyone not living in the UK.

Thanks for replies.
Catrose answer sums it up well.

LD is about right.

Due to moving, computer crashes and as many other excuses as you like, I have not paid as much attention to my details as I might have.

I find it frustrating that an organisation like a bank will not accept other methods of demonstrating that a person who’s is account holder is who they say they are. For instance, I could relate my banking history since it began, but, I am informed, that is unacceptable.

My wife also had a letter, exactly the same words, saying that her signature did not match.

It it surprising that one’s signature changes over forty or fifty years ?
