Re: power of attorney

Why not just make the bank account a joint one then you both have access and automatically inherit without any hassle. A UK POA will not necessarily be accepted in Turkey without a notarised translation.

Re: power of attorney

A UK citizen wanting a power of attorney for use in Turkey must have it apostilled by the Foreign Office in London first.
Otherwise it will not be accepted here.

What is a Power of Attorney?
A Power of Attorney is a written authorisation by which one person enables an appointed person to perform specified acts for his/her behalf. The Power of Attorney may be granted (executed) as a general or a limited authority. The scope of the Power of Attorney will define what a court will enforce as being the scope of its authority. Powers of Attorney are useful and required in cases when
- You wish your personal or commercial business to be conducted in your absence, when for example, your business is in a different country
- You wish your personal or commercial business to be conducted by someone who has more expertise or technical knowledge than you, when for example, you are dealing with a legal matter
- You are alive but unable to look after your financial or legal affairs, for example, if you are in an accident or suffer a serious medical emergency.

POWERS OF ATTORNEY PREPARED IN THE UK
The Power of Attorney prepared in the UK must be correctly executed as a deed under English law. As explained in the next sections, there can be different procedures for Turkish citizens and for UK nationals for the use of Powers of Attorney in the UK or Turkey.

a) For use in the UK
- If the Power of Attorney prepared in the UK is to be used in the UK, the procedure below will apply both to Turkish and UK nationals.
- If you are in the UK and you intend to use the Power of Attorney in the UK, you can have a Solicitor prepare the Power of Attorney for you and have it notarised by a Notary (Notary Public). A Notary is an internationally recognised legal officer who can authenticate signatures on the Power of Attorney.
- We recommend that you ask a lawyer to draft your POA. For a list of TBCCI member Solicitors and Law Offices who offer Power of Attorney and Notarial services, click here.

b) For use in Turkey
If you are in the UK and you plan to authorise the Power of Attorney for use in Turkey, the procedure is different for Turkish citizens and for UK nationals:

b1) If you are a Turkish Citizen:
Turkish citizens in the UK wishing to authorise a Power of Attorney for use in Turkey, can have their Power of Attorney prepared and notarised at the Turkish Consulate General in London and must apply in person to the Consulate by prior appointment. Turkish Consulate notarised Power of Attorney arranged by a Turkish national can be used in Turkey without any need for further endorsement from a UK notary or any UK authority.

Click here to see the documents required for Power of Attorney
Click here for an online Consulate appointment. Address: Rutland Lodge, Rutland Gardens, Knightsbridge, London SW7 1BW
Tel.: 020 7591 6900,
Fax: 020 7591 6911,
E-Mail: [email protected]

Beside the procedure described above, Turkish nationals may also follow the alternative route explained in section (b2) below. In this process called the “Apostille”, instead of the Turkish Consulate executing the Power of Attorney, POA is first notarised by a Notary in the UK, and then the notarised document is legalised by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office.

b2) If you are a UK national or a corporate entity registered in the UK:
UK nationals in the UK or a legal entity registered in the UK intending to authorise a Power of Attorney for use in Turkey should:

So did I and as far as I am aware you still can . Mind postulation was easier as you could do it at the foreign office iat Marble Arch in those days.

Not certain what Stevecarol is saying "wrong" to without explanation . We have a joint account for the very reason stated by Kanga . The money would be transferred by the surviving partner before anyone knew officially.

Re: power of attorney

We got POA in London about a month ago it was quite cheap, I know when we got a POA in Turkey it cost more than it cost in London.

Re: power of attorney

Akbuk that looks like a perfect example of how not to write a POA with the generality of the instructions ,to enble the agreement of amounts without reversion, to receive monies without instruction as to what to do with them , to have the ability to pass the powers on to third parties and for the POA to have an unlimited life etc etc . Tell me it is tongue in cheek.
