Reader question: Are notaire offices staying open? I planned to see one about an inheritance issue. 

Yes, the Conseil supérieur du notariat confirmed offices across France will remain open during the second lockdown. 

You can arrange a face-to-face meeting for any tasks that cannot be carried out remotely, and strict hygiene protocols will apply. 

You will need a piece of identification and an attestation dérogatoire de déplacement and, the Covid-19 hotline staff confirmed, tick the box "Convocation judiciaire ou administrative et pour se rendre dans un service public".
