A Power of Attorney is basically used to legally hand over control of your affairs to another person. The ‘principal’ empowers another individual to act on your behalf. A Power of Attorney in Thailand can be used for short-term specific transactions which the principal cannot handle themselves.
All Thai government offices require the use of their own paperwork to appoint someone and only Thai nationals can be appointed Power of Attorney. That person doesn’t need to be a lawyer or work for a law or notary company; they can be a friend or family member. The Power of Attorney can be used to transfer property, vehicles and manage living wills. If you have assets in Thailand and only live here on a part time basis then this service might be very useful one day.
