I am in the process of buying my brothers half share in our Tenerife apartment. He is ill and cannot travel overseas. I need power of attorney advise to act on his behalf. Can you help.

My name isXXXXX and I'm happy to help with your question today.

You should ask a solicitor to draft a power of attorney on behalf of your brother.

Ideally this should bilingual - English and Spanish.

The power of attorney should then be executed in the presence of a UK Notary Public.

It will then be necessary to obtain a legalisation certificate from the Foreign and Commonwealth Office to be able to use the power of attorney abroad.

I appreciate this sounds like a lot of work but actually one firm of solicitors should be able to assist you with the process fairly swiftly.
