Furthermore, our mandate specifies all the mentions of the parties that must be included in the contract on the drafted document and in the annex. By downloading our document, you will have a general overview of all the information that must be included in a mandate of administrator. However, it is recommended to contact a lawyer in the context of a mandate signed for special representations such as a representation for a legal action or to defend yourself against a legal action of another party; a representation mandate to represent you before the police authorities in Thailand. Indeed, according to the type of representation, a very precise and specific formalism will be necessary to validate.
When purchasing a property in Thailand, the buyer must normally be present at the transfer. However, the buyer has the option of giving power of attorney to his lawyer or another qualified person to effect the transfer of ownership. The transfer of ownership is done at the relevant land office. To complete the transfer of ownership in your absence, the attorney or other qualified person must have a POA signed by the grantor. A power of attorney must follow a specific form and include the forms that are given by the land office authorities to make this representation, known as a Tor Dor 21. However, there are many types of forms that differ depending on the type of property that will be transferred.
In the case of the signature of a transferor outside Thailand, certification of the signature by a notary is required for validation. Indeed, the land office agents will refuse to accept a POA signed abroad without certification by a foreign notary. In addition, the agent may request the notary’s identification card and business card as proof of identity. Please note that the land office may also require certification from the Thai embassy, so it is important to seek legal advice to ensure that the property transfer can be completed.
This Agreement may be terminated in the following situations:
The Grantor decides to terminate the mandate with the assignee. In this case, the Grantor shall send a formal letter to the Grantee stating that the Grantee no longer has the authority to represent. The Grantor need not give a reason or cause for such termination.
A power of attorney is an intuitu personae document and therefore terminates upon the death of the person who has granted power of attorney to another person. Of course, it is possible to include contractual clauses to ensure continuity with the heirs, if any.
It is not mandatory to specify the duration of the power of attorney. However, you can put a fixed date that will specify the validity of the power of attorney for a specific period. At the end of the term, the said mandate will no longer be valid, and it will be necessary to extend the mandate again to continue the representation.
