John Melis, Expert

Hi, I’m John Melis, solicitor, and I am in Australia.

I can hear your concern and your voice, and if you follow the steps I’ve suggested, it will give you a direction moving forward.

There is an excellent opportunity to resolve this matter to your requirements. I suggest that you continue written communication with the other party. Put everything in chronological order. That documentation will be vital for proceedings if litigation is commenced.

Would you like to consider this option?

You’re handling this matter very well.

If there is anything else, big or small, that I can help you with today, please let me know?

John Melis, Expert

To revoke the power you just need to issue written correspondence signed by you confirming that your revoking the power.It was my pleasure to help you today, and I thank you for chatting with me. Let me know if you have any other questions.
Customer
Dear *****, You mean just a ordinary letter, I cannot believe that. How will a bank or some institution know his POA is revoked. Is there a registration & de registration process?
img

John Melis, Expert

you can revoke the power of attorney with an ordinary letter with your signature witnessed.
Customer
I don't accept that one can revoke POA by one simple letter. The original POA is still with him, he can use it by fraud. Example the can go to my bank and withdrew funds which I will find out, but later then what happens. Of cause this is a criminal act.

The principal who gave the power-of-attorney can revoke it by written form. Are you the principal that wants to revoke the power-of-attorney?
Customer
I am the principal and want POA revoked

Then you can revoke that power under your written authority.

If you prefer to talk on the telephone, I have sent you a special offer of $8.00 to assist you in more detail, as it will make it easier to discuss your matter. I kindly request that you complete the information on the offer, and we can talk straight away as you need. Otherwise, we can keep chatting in this box.

If the power-of-attorney is drafted correctly, it will be valid in other states of Australia but not overseas.
