Tips and video on how to avoid requisitions about the execution of deeds and powers of attorney.
Avoid common problems with executing deeds by checking:
- each party’s signature has been witnessed, and that the witness details have been included
- you are using the correct form of execution for the person or organisation involved
Avoid the two main types of errors with powers of attorney by enclosing:
- a copy of a power – this tends to be for corporate attorneys. Don’t forget that instead of enclosing a copy of a power, you can enclose a certificate in Form 1 in Schedule 3 to the Land Registration Rules 2003
- confirmation of identity for an attorney, as well as the donor of the power when this is required. This will always be required except where they have executed a discharge.
