Public official

Public official – Also known somewhere as “notary public”: in many legal systems this term describes the figure of a legal practitioner with specific judicial authority to witness the signing legal documents usually with an official seal and documents which later are a subject of entering at the Land Register-for example, Title Deeds for property sale or for establishing a mortgage on a real estate. His other authority is to witness facts and stipulate these facts in official documents (for example, serving notary invitation for termination of a contract). Most countries do not have notaries vesting administrative legal authority in lawyers or court officers. The notaries public in many countries participate in professional Chamber. The public official is different than the public officer, who is a person, elected or appointed to run a public office, and who executes public powers in performance of their duties.
