POWER OF ATTORNEY

To deal with some legal matters in Portugal, such as real estate transactions, it is sometimes necessary to give someone (usually a lawyer) a power of attorney. That document, known in Portuguese as a "procuração", can be drawn up by the Honorary Consul in Auckland and must be signed in his presence.

The fee is $90, payable in cash, by credit card or by direct banking deposit to account number 02-0191-0322861-01.

The document must be drafted by the lawyer involved. The Honorary Consul cannot provide legal advice or create the legal document, only witness it.

The draft should be specific to the stated aims and the powers granted must not exceed those reasonably necessary to achieve those aims. For example, the document should empower A to represent B in the sale of property X, but should not be a general power for A to act for B on all matters.

The draft should be emailed to the Honorary Consul in computer-readable format, for example Microsoft Word or text. Documents in other formats, for example images or PDF, may require the Consulate to use a translation/typing service, subject to additional costs.


DS     The Honorary Consul is Mr. Daniel Silva.
Attendance is by appointment. Appointments are normally available on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays between 12:30pm and 2:30pm. To make an appointment, please contact the Consulate by email daniel@silva.co.nz advising the preferred dates and the service required.
