Power of Attorney Letter

Power of attorney or POA is a legal term which refers to the authority of acting on behalf of another person. This is particularly for legal and financial matters. There come times when one has to nominate someone else to take decisions on his part. For example, a person on his deathbed would have to choose someone to act as his attorney after his death, a person living abroad may want some of his relative or friend to take up on his legal matters. For all such cases, a power of attorney letter becomes an essential document.

Usually, an attorney is transferred either by filling a mutual form that the one transferring and the one receiving sign up or by a legal letter that is written by the one who wishes to transfer the attorney. It should be kept in mind that although power of attorney could be canceled or kept conditional, there are times when one cannot retreat from what has been done, i.e. transfer of attorney. It is, therefore, important to consult a legal advisor to get an enough understanding of whom to and how to transfer.
