The notaries of the Klaipeda First Notary’s Office perform the following notarial acts:

Making of executive records in protested or unprotested bills of exchange and checks

The notary shall make executive records in protested or unprotested bills of exchange and checks according to a written application to recover money from a debtor submitted by the holder of the bill of exchange or check or a person authorised by such holder or a person having a right of recourse.

The executive record made by the notary suggests to recover from the debtor the amount of the bill of exchange or check which was not paid within the time limit for the payment of bill of exchange or check or unpaid part of the amount of bill of exchange or check, including interest, notary’s fee paid by the holder of bill of exchange or check for protesting of bill of exchange or check and making of executive record, including notification dispatch and other expenses.

Notarial executive records according to protested or unprotested bills of exchange or checks are enforceable and executive documents to be exercised under the procedure provided for in the Code of Civil Procedure.

The Law on Bills of Exchange and Notes and the Law on Checks provide for strict requirements on mandatory details of bills of exchange and checks, procedures for submitting them for payment and protesting, including terms. In case of non-compliance with these requirements or on expiry of such period, the notary will be unable to make executive record, therefore, outstanding amount of bill of exchange or check will have to be recovered under judicial (dispute) procedure.
