Power of Attorney is an instrument through which you can empower a third person to do, deal with, act and settle the matter and things on your behalf for which he is appointed by you. It is advisable to utilize the services of an advocate who is experienced to comply with the formalities of drafting and execution of Power of Attorney.

Q:- My father is a General Power of Attorney holder in respect of property at Kengeri.  The khatha stands in the name of my father as holder. He is paying the taxes regularly and receipts are issued in his name. But many people say that he is not the owner of the property but he may sell it to any other person and get it registered in purchaser’s name. As we want to retain the property, can my father sell and register the property to me. Please advice?

Q:- My uncle has given Power of Attorney to his friend to develop certain properties, negotiate and sell them. He has also received the consideration.  The stamp duty paid on Power of Attorney is Rupees One Thousand only and the Power of Attorney is not registered. The Attorney holder has developed the property and has sold to various purchasers. But, now my uncle wants to gift some portion of the said property to his sister. Since the stamp duty paid on Power of Attorney is only Rupees One Thousand and not as per sale deed and is not registered, can my uncle claim the sale deeds executed by his friend, Power of Attorney holder, as irregular and not enforceable and gift the property to his sister.
