What does 記 mean when is placed between different articles/paragraphs of a 公正証書 (notarial document)? Here's an example: https://goo.gl/yVYQe7 (I have omitted names and addresses for privacy). Thanks for your help!

    I'm not really sure how I'd translate it as a single word, but the idea is "recorded" ... meaning here something like declared assets that fit under the above section. – virmaior Sep 24 '16 at 5:33

Well 大辞泉 has the definition


for 記. So it is just a writing style for indicating factual stuff.


That format is common in a less formal document or announcement -- for example, company-wide fire drill in the following week.

1. 日時
2. 場所
3. …

Maybe this 記 means "Note" or "N.B." or "noted" or "hereby noted".
