Real estate

We advise and assist you in the purchase or sale of your property by drawing up the necessary contracts and assisting in obtaining documents and information.

A land sale or a land purchase requires several steps. For example, the drafting of the land purchase agreement, the drawing up of a mortgage certificate, the establishment of an easement (usufruct, right of abode, etc.) if necessary, or parcelling in the case of the construction of a condominium. The notary's office of Bracher & Partner will advise you and carry out the necessary notarisations including registration at the land registry for you.

Notary's office rates

All notary fees in the canton of Bern are bindingly regulated in the Ordinance on notarial fees (GebVN).

The notarial fee consists of a fee according to the fee regulation and additional cost for correspondence, telephone calls, etc. The additional costs will be charged according to time and effort.

If there is a business value (e.g. the purchase price in a purchase contract), the fee will be calculated on this basis. The costs of orders or contracts without business value, like marriage and inheritance contracts, parceling, etc will be based according to time and effort. A minimum fee will be charged according to the Ordinance.

Third-party costs, like extracts from several registers as well as VAT (value added tax) will be charged extra. Any authority costs (land registry, commercial register, etc.) will be charged separately.

At the start we will inform you about expected costs like notary fees, third-part costs and any taxes. For any further information please contact our notary – we will be pleased to assist you.
