PoA - Revocation

Posted: 01 Jul 2018 19:20

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

Hi HappyCamper

Without seeing the actual wording of the PoA I cannot say whether you need to revoke it.

If it only relates to the purchase of a property then it can't be used for anything else.

If you want to send me a copy to look through, you can contact me via my news site at

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 these legal questions

I shall take professional advice on the issue - please do not respond


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 approve it. Also please note that the power of attorney is only for Cyprus. You didn’t have any other assets in Cyprus.
In any way, if you want to revoke it feel free to do it, even if by having it you may need services and it may be handy, however because we want you to be comfortable, we advise you to revoke it.
If you signed and post the attach letter with the copy of the photo page of your passport to the land Registry, they will deal with it.

Dear Sirs,

RE: Power of attorney No XXX/18 signed by us giving power of attorney to Penelope Athinodorou Mantis, Michael Mantis and Nicholas Mantis
Our above lawyers concluded the purchase of our property and transfer the deed to us, so we do not want the existence of the above power of attorney any longer.

Please revoke it.

Thank you.
Kind regards,
