Bulgaria, Vratsa District
One notary was appointed to each District court to perform and certify any acts for sale, rent, donation, etc. In towns and villages where there were only Justice of the peace (Peace judges), they performed the duties of the notary. Until 31.08.1910, notaries of rank were equal to the members of the secondary district courts (second instance), but they were not considered to be members of the courts – they were not magistrates. Kreposten Akt was not considered a legal term in Bulgaria. The legislation of 1878 uses Act and Notary Act.
