### N-2 - Notarial Act

29. (1)  If, by mistake, a notary gives the same number to more than one minute, or makes any other mistake in numbering, such minutes shall remain authentic, but as soon as he discovers the mistake, the notary must write, after the signatures, on every minute which contains such a mistake, a declaration under his oath of office stating the nature of the mistake so made, and must enter in the repertory the numbering as it appears on the minute. A copy of such declaration must be sent to the secretary of the Order without delay; such declaration shall not be required for deeds en minute executed before 12 June 1933.
(2)  If a notary omits a number, he must, as soon as he discovers the mistake, insert in his records, at the place where the deed bearing the omitted number should have been, a sheet of paper on which he must write, date and sign a declaration under his oath of office mentioning the fact that such number has been omitted. He must enter such number in his repertory with a note opposite that no deed corresponds thereto. A copy of such declaration must be sent to the secretary of the Order without delay.
(3)  If several consecutive numbers have been omitted, the same declaration may be used for all such numbers.
(4)  Any notary who infringes the provisions of section 28 or of this section shall be subject to the penalties provided by the regulations.
