|The main findings of the Autorité: the level of increase for notaries and court bailiffs seems disproportionate and does not appear to be justified by equivalent additional costs.|
|The findings of the opinion lead the Autorité to make two recommendations:
- to review the current system of increases, so that the objective of reasonable remuneration of the professionals and orientation of prices towards the costs, provided for by the “Macron law”, is more respected, and that the overseas consumer does not suffer a tariff surcharge that is not proportionate to the additional costs;
- to develop a method for determining the rate of increase based on objective elements, which takes into account the costs incurred by professionals and criteria such as the cost of living differential between French overseas departments and regions and mainland France and changes in volumes of activity of Overseas offices.
|The Autorité's recommendations:
to overhaul the regulatory framework in order to end the inadequacy between the observed additional costs and the practiced increases.
