About Power of Attorney

A power of attorney is a legal document made by one person, who is called the 'principal', that allows another person to do things with the principal's money, bank accounts, shares, real estate and other assets.

You must register your power of attorney if you intend to register, with NSW LRS, a sale, mortgage, lease or other dealing affecting your real estate.
