QUESTION: Dear Legal Wiz,
I live in the UK and have a Residency and Property Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA) for both of my parents. They also live in the UK and have property and financial assets in Jamaica. Will my LPA be recognised in Jamaica?
RESPONSE: Dear Roger
Please be prepared to take all necessary steps to record the power of attorney instrument in Jamaica, as it is a different jurisdiction.
The above does not constitute legal advice. The responses are prepared and published by inhouse senior journalists after research and discussion with attorneys-at-law and other specialists, as necessary.
The Legal Wiz networks professionals from all fields to serve the interest of all Jamaicans and persons relating with Jamaicans.
