The notary procedures for real estate transactions will no longer be regionalized according to the Notary Law which will take effect on July 1. Citizens who need to have the related documents notarized may choose any available notary public chamber in the city.

There are currently 6 notary public chambers in HCMC and according to the HCMC People’s Committee’s Decision No.294 dated 12/15/2003, each one of them can only deal with documents on real estate transactions in specific regions.
Accordingly, documents on real estate transactions in district 1, 3, 4 and 7 and those involving foreigners in Nha Be and Can Gio suburban districts can only be handled by the notary public chamber No.1. Meanwhile, the notary public chamber No. 2 deals with procedures in district 5, 6, 8, 11, and Binh Tan. This regulation has caused inconveniences for many people, creating a need for change.
