- powers of attorney are a versatile and common means of delegating authority, , a seller may wish to appoint another person to execute documents on his behalf at a completion meeting or a trustee may wish to delegate all his functions certain period. A power of attorney is a document by which one party gives another person the power to act on his behalf and in his name. It may be a general power or limited to certain defined purposes. In your situation, you would need the advice of a Gambian law professional. However, in the UK, powers of attorney are routinely used and pose no reason provided they are narrowly drafted in scope and have a limited time span.
