Remind These Facts When Giving Power of Attorney

  • Give “Power of Attorney” to professional estate agents or solicitors. If they do not know what they are doing, it is not advised to give this valuable document.
  • Give only needed powers. For example, when you purchase a property, give just “Buying Property” power. If needed give also “water and electricity connection” power.
  • It is NOT advised to give General Power of Attorney. General one might contain debt accepting or selling your property. This can be used against you in bad hands.
  • Giving Power of Attorney means; “You may act on behalf of me for these powers” It will be your name and picture on the title deeds (tapu).
  • There is a sworn translator at the Notary Public. This interpreter has officially promised to the Notary to translates just the truth. You can not bring your own translator.
