Power Of Attorney

A power of attorney, or POA, is an agreement that allows one person or company (the grantor) to authorize another person or company (the attorney-in-fact or agent) to act on their behalf. POA can be used for a variety of purposes, including business and financial matters.

In the United Arab Emirates, a power of attomey must be granted by an individual who is at least 21 years old and mentally competent. For foreign business owners, a foreign power of attomey must also be translated into Arabic and then authenticated by UAE authorities. Lawyers in Dubai can assist with these formalities.

A power of attorney is a document that allows one person to authorize another to act on their behalf. In most cases, they grant legal representation in financial or medical matters. The person granting legal authority is known as the grantor, while the person receiving it is called an executor. A power of attorney can be revoked at any time or when its purpose has been completed. Once the grantor dies, the POA becomes invalid.

Property Sale Power Of Attorney

Property Sale Power of Attorney is a document required by Dubai Land Department (DLD) when selling a property. As per DLD lilies, the POA should not be more than two years old. If it has been mining, re-validation of the POA will be required if it hasn’t been used within two years from the date it came into effect.

When a property is mortgaged, the Notary Public will require a NOC (no objection certificate) from the financing bank, along with a time copy of the title deed issued by the bank.
