Powers of Attorney

This is a written document which allows a person to grant legal power to another to effect transactions on their behalf. This document must be signed and witnessed.

  • If it is a general Power of Attorney affecting real property (land) rights or powers to deal with real property, the general Power of Attorney must be registered at the Land Registration Office of Barbados.

A Power of Attorney is issued in circumstances where:

  • ill health prevents you from conducting your own business personally
  • you are out of the jurisdiction and need certain matters handled immediately or in your absence
  • it is simply more convenient for you to do so

There are two (2) different types of Power of Attorney.

General Power of Attorney

A General POA gives the grantee certain general and wide powers to do almost every legal act that you, as grantor, can do in your own right.

This type of POA has to be registered at the Land Registry of Barbados.

Extreme care is needed and careful consideration should be taken before issuing a General POA since it can have a very wide application.

Specific Power of Attorney

A specific POA (or Limited POA) gives the grantee power to perform only a specific transaction

A Power of Attorney does not last forever.

It can be revoked at any time in writing by you or it will be automatically revoked if you have been diagnosed with a mental disability or as at the date of your death.

Call our Contact Centre at 622-9000 or our Legal Department at 622-8911/12/13 to set up an appointment.

Persons should be aware that this document cannot be substituted for a will since it ceases to have power upon the death of the grantor.
