The Notaries is a term referring to the departments concerned with aspects of
documentation whether for contracts, transactions, mortgages, settlements,
agencies, or otherwise. Assigning the task of documentation to the competent
authority promotes the legal regard, and procedural and formal integration is
significantly useful in accuracy of work, discipline, and promptness of
implementation. The tasks of the notaries were organized in the era of King
AbdulAziz – may God have mercy on him – under royal decree dated 26/02/1346 H.
