We legalise many customer’s Powers of Attorney (POA) for use overseas. Documents being used in another country may need an apostille certificate before they will be accepted.
A POA is a legal document that allows you to appoint another person to act on your behalf. This is commonly used by people in the UK that need someone to represent them in legal matters abroad. For example, if you are buying or selling a house, property, aeroplane or car in another country, you can appoint a lawyer, or another person, to represent you. This means they can act on your wishes without you having to visit the country to sign documents or attend meetings. It can save you considerable time and money.
Essentially, a power of attorney (PoA) is a legal document that allows a person to give legal authority to someone else to make decisions and take actions on his or her behalf.
