Customer Question

My wife has a property in Sri Lanka and and she lives in Australia. Currently she is a carer for me at home under intensive care.She has a property in Sri Lanka and would like to sell it and wants to give a POA to transfer and sell the property to the new buyer.
Without going to Sri Lanka can she give a POA to her nephew to sell it in Sri Lanka. And the method to give the POA while in Australia.

Good Afternoon.

My name is ***** ***** I am a NSW Solicitor. Thank you for your question, and will do my best to assist you with your question. Please understand this is not legal advise but a guide to assist you.

If she can have the POA prepared in Srilanka and emailed to here she can sign it before a Notary Public in Australia.

It is legal then and it can be used in Sri Lanka.

The Sri Lankan Embassy here will also advise her on whether she needs to have an Apostle or the embassy verify the Notaries signature and seal. But she does not have to go to the Srilanka do get this done.

I hope this makes sense and is of assistance. if there is nothing further

thank you for using my services.

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.
