in the event that anyone else is interested in this issue

the response from my solicitor when asked was..... Thank you for your email. You were very wise you signed the power of attorney. You signed so we could conclude all the works without difficulties. We never use the power of attorney without the consent of the client. We signed the contract after you...

They want us to agree that they should do this on our behalf and in...

Re: PoA - Revocation

Thanks Nigel My PoA was for property transfer I know it can not be used for any other purpose But as and when we may sell/buy another property it needs to be revoked so we can choose another solicitor So my question was how do you revoke? If you are not a solicitor Nigel you should not be answering ...

PoA - Revocation

I had to give my solicitor PoA so that we could complete a property purchase in Cyprus whilst we were in the UK.
Purchase now completed - he acted on our behalf using the PoA whenever I authorised him to do so in writing
But how do I now revoke the PoA/should I revoke it?

Any advice welcome

euro currency cards

at first sight this (and other competitors) looked good to me but I know nothing of them all in all they seem to everything I would want a bank account for - ATM withdrawals, shopping, bill payment etc - but with minimal fees and a competitive exchange rate are they in common use in cyprus? others u...

euro current accounts

not sure what is the best way to do this and its all greek to me - but what I need is a euro bank account that I can put deposits into as needed (probably twice a year) and I can use to pay cypriot bills and draw cash out of ATMs when I am over. Internet banking is a must have. I see that some UK ba...

Re: Home Insurance back in the UK

Thanks Nigel I am lucky I have v good neighbours - but I would not want to ask them take on responsibility for my house and liability for my insurance cover. Asking a bit too much I think. Checking each week was what my Insurers wanted (amongst other things). My option for that is to pay my local es...
