Power Of Attorney




Hello,

I would greatly appreciate assistance with the following:

I am a Canadian national (have not applied for OCI yet) wanting to give a specific power of attorney to my uncle in Mumbai to be able to rent a property I own over there. From what I understand, this is a 3 step process. Step 1: Notarize POA, Step 2: Authenticate by Official Document Services (ODS, Ontario), Step 3: Notarize by CGI Toronto. My questions are as follows:

a) Can I create a specific POA using a template available online on A4 paper? Does it have to be on green paper? Does it have to be prepare by a lawyer? Does it have to be 'Canadianized'?

b) How many witnesses do I need? And at which Steps?

c) Do I only sign the document once in the presence of the Notary?

Thank you in advance!

See if GOI needs the ODS seal and registration.

UNLESS the Authorization is specifically for sale, you can go to a Notary Public (Some Malls have them) and take TWO of your good friends with ID.'s and ask the Notary to witness the Document and signatures there at the Mall. *This is to permit someone you Authorize to rent, Collect Deposit, Do repairs and fix appliances, appearances and general maintenance. You can use a Regular Foolscap Paper. Staples sells to you Any color Paper for 10 cents a sheet.

If the Consulate General of India agrees to this format for this document, you will have to observe the RED SEAL or the ODS procedure. Call or Write and get the procedure from them for the attestation.

You must carry ID's, Proof of Residence for EACH witness Sufficient copies for your use and Attestation and Distribution. Ownership and Registered Documents with location map and Co-ordinates.(GPS) Required Fees.

If you are Authorizing some one there in India, then, Their name, ID and Proof there of with Residential details and credentials and his/her signature. You must authorize to deduct and deposit taxes on your behalf to the Government as required and obtain and retain the receipt and maintain proper Accounts.

ODS does not validate the contents of documents.

Authentication will only proceed if:

We will return the documents, by Canada Post, within 15 business days of receipt. You can use a courier service of your choice if you enclose a pre-paid envelope with your request.
