Arrow POWER OF ATTORNEY from the UK

Afternoon all,

Apologies to those who know how this works, but for the benefit of anyone in the Uk actively selling a property in Turkey who will for whatever reason not be able to come over in person to complete the Tapu transfer, I re-produce the procedure for a British P.O.A to be valid here.
This comes in a week where the situation has arisen several times - so its fair to say it must be quite common.

Perhaps UK vendors could give thought to having one prepared if they are liable to find themselves in this situation. Winter is not far off and the combination of a lack of flights and mainly Turkish buyers who will expect to complete quickly; could see many similar cases

regards

Steve

Can a figure not be added here if you have agreed a sale figure with a buyer already ?

Re: POWER OF ATTORNEY from the UK

I'm sure it could be. This version which is most commonly used is sent in advance to a TRUSTED person and backed by a written contract of sale.

The purpose of the thread is to help everyone understand more of the processes that are commonly used here.
As far as I'm concerned, the more good information in circulation - the better for everyone.

regards

Re: POWER OF ATTORNEY from the UK

can you tell me how long POA lasts for? myself and a few friends granted POA to someone (turkish) to get our tapu about 3 years ago,which they did with no problems at all.does this mean that the POA has now expired once the tapu,s were received? i hope this makes sense! thanks chris.

Re: POWER OF ATTORNEY from the UK

Hi Chrisandjill

There are a number of varieties of POA - but beware, as in the UK some of these are enduring with no end date inserted.
POA should ALLWAYS be cancelled once the aim has been acheived!

Re: POWER OF ATTORNEY from the UK

Have the original returned to you (not a copy)

Powers of attorney are worthless without the notary stamps.

Please check the copy which you should have from the time it was issued. It may have an end date, or may state that it was granted for the sole purpose of obtaining Tapu in your name. If either of these are stated then you might be ok

I'm just naturally cautious.
