DATE: 20 SEPTEMBER 2022
CIRCULAR MEMORANDUM: 8/2022
SUBJECT: POWERS OF ATTORNEY – MULTIPLE DONORS
It has come to the Recorder's attention that Powers of Attorney with multiple donors are being lodged with the Land Titles Office.
Attention is drawn to subsection 9(1)(a) of the Powers of Attorney Act 2000 (the Act), which states:
(1) A power of attorney made or created under section 18 or 30 must –
(a) not have more than one donor
For clarification purposes, the policy of the Recorder is that, pursuant to subsection 9(1)(a), no Tasmanian Power of Attorney with multiple Donors will be accepted for registration.
Practitioners are encouraged to re-familiarise themselves with the formal requirements for Powers of Attorney contained in section 9 of the Act.
