Additionally, other acts are carried out beforea Notary, such as Wills, the incorporation of companies, the conferringof powers of attorney or company representation, etc. Notaries are advisorsto the parties in the operations authorized under their signature, and draw-upthe corresponding public deeds. These documents must be recorded in a specialbook which is authorized for such purpose, called a protocol. One of themost important formalities of notarial performance is for the Notary tosign the documents and affix his Seal. Documents issued before a NotaryPublic are public documents, valid (since no-one can object to their validity),and are documents which, in the case of certain operations, can be recordedin Public Registers such as that of Property (real estate), or Commerce(corporations), as officially certified documents. Documents issued by PublicNotaries are considered to be true and legal in any legal dispute in courts.
