The amount depends on the subject, type, and value of the agreement. A party to a notarial act may apply to the court for exemption of the cost associated with signing an agreement. The exemption may refer to both the notarial and court fees.
Fees are paid:
- in cash, to the notary in person.
- to the bank account of the notary office.
The sum of received fee shall be written in the notarial deed. When admitting the legal basis of the fee determination, a notary appoints a person who shall pay the fee and manner in which it shall be paid, as well as the position in the inventory. If a party that is obliged to pay chooses to be exempted from this duty, the notary marks this in a notarial deed and gives the legal basis of exemption. In case the payment is made in cash the Kraków notary
may give a receipt containing the payment sum.. The notary transfers the collected fees to the bank account of the district court, which is the proper court to examine the petition for entry to land and mortgage register, or directly to the court payment office.
