What is a public legal notice?

A public legal notice is a public notice posting required by most jurisdictions to inform citizens of government, private individual or company activities that affect the citizens. For government entities, public legal notices may include hearings and meetings, zoning changes, requests for bids on government contracts, permit applications and more. For individuals and companies, public legal notice may include foreclosures, probate, public auctions, fictitious names and more.
