Power of Attorney is a fairly common legal document, usually prepared by Lawyers, and signed in the presence of a practising lawyer in Singapore. If you are signing your Power of Attorney outside Singapore, you will need to sign it in the presence of a Singapore Consulate Officer or a Notary Public in that country.
For example, if you are on a business trip and unable to attend to your personal affairs in Singapore, you may need a family member to help you to sign some legal documents (eg. a Transfer instrument in respect of the sale of your private property in Singapore).
You should be at least 21 years and have the mental capacity to sign the Power of Attorney.
To complete the process, your Lawyer in Singapore will deposit a true copy of your Power of Attorney at the Singapore High Court (Supreme Court), and the Power of Attorney is assigned a Registration Number by the Singapore High Court.
