Have Australian Law Questions? Ask a Lawyer Now.
My name is ***** ***** I am a NSW Solicitor. I will do my best to assist you with your question.
No the power of attorney has to be prepared by a solicitor in Australia and she has to have it signed before a notary public in the country she is in. If she is near an Australian Embassy or consulate she can have it signed there and then she can post the original back to you.
Once you have it, it has to be registered in WA with the lands department and you can then use it to sign on her behalf.
If this is not done then you cannot act on her behalf.
I hope this makes sense and is of assistance. if there is nothing further

If I have missed anything, or you have any further questions please let me know
If there is anything else in the future please do not hesitate to ask.
