About this document

Use this special Power of Attorney template for appointing an attorney to file and pursue a petition in the Court for grant of a letter of administration in respect of the ancestral moveable and immoveable property devolved by way of a Will or uniform scheme of succession otherwise.

When you have an ancestral property / fortunes devolved by way of a Will or succession otherwise, and you are unable to pursue the petition for grant of a letter of administration personally for reasons of being away from the homeland or state, this doc works best to help you get the same with the help of an attorney specifically appointed for the purpose.

Finding the right person for appointment as attorney, however, is your responsibility and prerogative.
