Slater and Gordon Lawyers have specialists with expertise in dealing with French Powers of Attorney or procurations. Call our specialist Lawyers on freephone 0800 916 9083 or contact us online.

A procuration is a French deed or “proxy “ which can authorise a third party to deal with your affairs, pay taxes and execute deeds on your behalf, if you are unable to do so in person.

Slater and Gordon Lawyers can advise on these French documents which can then be executed in the presence of a UK notary public, a process referred to as 'notarisation'. This is a service which we offer in-house with our own notary public. Alternatively, we can assist you in locating a notary in your own vicinity or nearest large town.

We can also arrange legalisation of such deeds dealing with agents and the Foreign and Commonwealth Office on your behalf in order to have an 'apostille' applied, a legalisation certificate confirming the notary’s registration. The process of legalisation makes the deed valid for use abroad and we aim to facilitate and progress this stage as quickly as possible.
