A Power of Attorney grants another person power to do something on their behalf.  This is executed as a Deed.  A single person or a number of people can give power and appoint just one or a number of attorneys.  A Power of Attorney can give power to a person for e.g buying or selling an apartment or House in India.  Powers of Attorney executed in England and Wales are regulated by the Power of Attorney Act 1971.  It is very important that any Power of Attorney that is granted is prepared and executed in accordance with the clear instructions of the person or persons granting power.  We have substantial expertise in drafting and notarising Powers of Attorney for use in India.  Here in the United Kingdom, we serve the Indian Community at a national and local level.
