translated from Spanish: Court of Appeals authorizes the operation of all notaries in quarantined communes

The Court of Appeals of Santiago decided to allow the operation of the notaries of the quarantined communes, without the shift restriction imposed so far, as a result of the emergency following the Covid-19.La authorization will leave the notary to operate between 09 hours and 13 hours, and the court of elevation indicated that “notaries shall take all health measures provided by the authority , such as those designed to avoid crowds inside, safeguarding the physical distance.” The Association of Notaries and Conservators said it values “the confidence that citizenship has given to the notary and registry system, and has promoted, since the beginning of the covid-19 crisis in Chile, a series of measures to prevent contagion in the country’s offices. These include booking hours on websites and through the telephone numbers of trades to avoid crowds outside the premises, the use of electronic platforms to expedite paperwork, as well as the provision of health measures such as limiting the number of people entering the offices simultaneously, and the use of masks and gloves by staff.” The group further recalled that it had proposed to the authorities before the crisis the elimination of at least 10 “unnecessary, but still required” formalities. They also noted that a year ago the Association of Notaries and Conservators proposes a path of dialogue for the creation of at least 15 new notaries in the Metropolitan Region.
