I am currently living and working in Nuremberg and hoping to close a refinance for a property in LA within the next week.
I found some 10 year old forum postings of other users saying the only way to sign mortgage papers in Germany is at the Embassy with horror stories of ppl having to pay up to 400 EUR for getting 5 pages notarized.
Question I would love to get input on:
Does it still hold true that the only option to get (refinance) mortgage papers signed for a US bank is at the embassy?
If anyone has gone through the process, do I need to bring a witness and does it need to be a US citizen? My US bank doesn't really know :|
Many thanks in advance.
