Notaries open way for start of online foreclosures


The association of Athens and Piraeus notaries did not bow to pressure from protesters outside the offices where it convened on Monday and decided to suspend its abstention from foreclosures, thereby opening the way for the launch of the online auction process on Wednesday as planned.

After a stormy session, the resignation of five association board members and the absence of many members from the meeting, the association decided to call its action off for now and review the situation in early February 2018, depending on whether the government has fulfilled its pledges to notaries.
