Property Law

Powers of Attorney

Powers of Attorney are used to enable a person or company to grant the legal right to a third party to sign legal documents on his or her behalf or on behalf of a company. Zaitman Lawyers can advise you and promptly prepare your Power of Attorney according to your requirements.

 

Powers of Attorney are commonly utilised when people are on leave, inaccessible or incapacitated and want to ensure that documents can be signed on their behalf. Powers of Attorney are commonly granted to family members, close friends, Solicitors, Accountants or financial advisors.

Powers of Attorneys are important instruments and must be carefully considered.

 

It is useful and often very important to appoint an attorney in the following circumstances:

  • when a person will be away on a trip and may require documents signed on his or her behalf

  • on the purchase or sale of a property where it is inconvenient for a third party to conduct the transaction and sign documents

  • on behalf of an elderly or incapacitated family member

  • where written consent may be required for medical treatment of a family member

  • where an Attorney is appointed to execute documents on behalf of a company

We can advise you and promptly prepare your Power of Attorney according to your requirements.
